The absolute joy of these easy, chocolate scotcharoos is that they are super easy, super fast and super delicious.

Hands down, this is my husband’s favorite treat.

The absolute joy of these little babies is that they are super easy, super fast and taste fabulous. I made a double batch – half for him to take to work, half for us at home.

I made them on Sunday. It is now Tuesday and both batches have disappeared down various people’s gullets both at work and at home. They are officially GONE!
