Merry Christmas everyone! This year Santa requested Reindeer Scotcheroos instead of cookies. My kids and their cousins helped me decorate these last night and we had a blast. The recipe came from my aunt but as I was looking around, I found that there are several recipes out there that are all very similar.

1 cup Sugar
1 cup Light Caro
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup Butterscotch Chips
Candy For Face
1 bag Mint M&M's
1 bag Large Swedish Fish
1 package Wilton Candy Eyes
1 tube Decorative Icing
Heat sugar and light Caro until it just begins to boil. Watch closely so you don't over heat it. Turn heat off and add 1 cup peanut butter and 6 cups of Rice Krispies. Spread mixture onto a 9x14 greased pan.
Tip: Place wax paper or parchment paper over the top of the pan and use your hands to flatten the Scotcheroos while they are still warm.
Combine milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave chips for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Stir the chips every 30 seconds. Pour the frosting over the Scotcheroos. Cool completely.
After the Scotcheroos have cooled, remove from pan and cut into 12 triangles.
Prepare the antlers by cutting tiny triangles along one side of the Swedish Fish.
Using the decorative icing, glue a red Mint M&M to the bottom point of the triangle. Then attach the antlers to the top and attach white Mint M&M's in the center and then the Candy Eyeballs on top of the white Mint M&M's.
