"Our teacher challenged our class to use the microwave for more than defrosting and reheating leftovers," write Michael Saunders and Andy Lyness of West Delaware Middle School in Manchester, Iowa. "This crispy jelly roll is one of our favorite microwave recipes."

    this recipe was a hit! i would definitely make it again. i might try what the other rater did and use peanut butter instead of butterscotch, but it was good as is. it was very sticky so make sure to use plenty of cooking spray

    Fun, easy treat to make for kids--grown up kids like it, too! Instead of butterscotch chips, I add 1/4 cup peanut butter.
