Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats

My husband and I had the best dessert in Park City, Utah! We savored every bite and I knew right away that I could replicate that exact dessert. These butterscotch rice krispie treats are to die for! If I had the choice between a chocolate or butterscotch topping, of course I would choose chocolate. However, the combination of rice krispies and butterscotch in this recipe seem to compliment each other very well and definitely kick this classic recipe up a notch!
3 Tbsp Margarine or Butter (I used "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter")
2 Tbsp light brown sugar
1 10 ounce package of Marshmallows
7 Cups Rice Krispies
1+1/2 Cups butterscotch morsels
Spray a large pyrex casserole dish with nonstick pam.
In a large pot, melt butter and brown sugar.
Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Make sure you do not burn the marshmallow mixture.
Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Then, mix your rice krispies until well-coated.
Lastly, fold in 1 cup of butterscotch morsels.
Transfer immediately to the pyrex dish because you do not want all of the butterscotch morsels to melt!
The mixture will be very sticky but try to evenly spread out the mixture in the casserole dish. 
Place in the freezer for 10 minutes. Once the mixture has cooled, remove the rice krispie treats from the freezer and finish forming the mixture to fit the casserole dish. 
***If you want to shape the rice krispie mixture into a heart or a fun shape, this would be the time to do it.  For all you last minute planners, this would be the perfect Valentine's Day dessert to surprise your significant other with!
Lastly, top the rice krispies with the remaining 1/2 cup of butterscotch morsels. You can push the morsels into the rice krispies so they will stay better!
I promise you this is most addicting and delicious sweet you will ever make!
