Reviews for Chocolate Scotcheroos
"I make these all the time, just without the shortening. They are SO GOOD. They always go fast at my house. Be sure not to boil the syrup mixture to long, or your bars will be hard!"
"Scotcheroos are one of my all time favorites. They remind me of my grandma! I also do not add the shortening. Just sprinkle the chips over the hot bars, wait for them to start to melt, and spread with a knife! :)"
"I can not stop eating these. I love them. Sometimes I put them in a 10x13 pan so they aren't quite so thick and I use 6 oz. each of the chips. I agree, the shortening is unnecessary. My brother is a marine and these travel great and are very well accepted!!"
"I make the same recipe, although I do not add the shortening. I really don't feel there is any need for it."
