Reviews for Chocolate Scotcheroos
"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."
