Recipe: Grandma’s Peanut Butter Scotchies (Peanut Butter Scotcheroos)

I used to watch my grandmother make these around Christmas time as a little girl. She always set some aside for me because she knew they were my favorite! As I grew older, I began to help her make them. Now that I am a parent, I have carried on my grandmother’s tradition by making them for my family at Christmas.

You will love these – I promise! They are delicious, and extremely quick and easy to make. But prepare yourself.. they are addictive. Try not to let your family eat all of them in one day.

    I appreciate this recipe. It’s original. Some of the recipes for these childhood treats also add sugar and corn syrup. Yuk! Makes my teeth hurt just to think about it! Thank you!
