Chewy, no-bake sweet scotcheroos on a stick are easy to make and easy to customize with your favorite sprinkles, nuts, and holiday colors!
1 cup Karo® Corn Syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups crisp rice cereal
36 lollipop sticks (5-inch length)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup white chocolate chips, melted
1/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts), optional
1/4 cup sprinkles, optional
Combine corn syrup and sugar together in a large pan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter; mix well. Add cereal; stir until evenly coated. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes.
Coat hands with butter or spray with cooking spray. Form Scotcheroo mixture into 1-inch balls and place on waxed paper. Carefully insert lollipop sticks into each ball. Cool for 30 minutes.
Place semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted. Repeat with white chocolate in a separate bowl.
Dip half of each ball into either semi-sweet or white chocolate. Immediately sprinkle with nuts and/or sprinkles. Place on waxed paper. Cool at least 1-1/2 hours until chocolate is completely set.
