Chocolate Scotcharoos

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!
