Scotcheroo Bars

These gluten free treats go by so many various names. My family calls them Scotcheroos or Rice Crispy Oh Henry Bars, but you could have known these as something else.
They are super simple to whip up. I like making them because they make a whole cookie sheet worth with only a little effort. These are my go to treats when I'm feeding larger quantities of people.
These ones that are pictured were made for a kid in my Calculus class's birthday. Hence the festive rainbow sprinkles (;
The Recipe is all follows :
8 cups crisp rice cereal
1 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup peanut butter
12 ounces milk chocolate chips
12 ounces butterscotch chips
Start by boiling the corn syrup and sugar until all the sugar dissolves. Then remove from heat and mix in the peanut butter till completely melted and smooth. Pour over crisp rice cereal and mix until completely coated. Press into cookie sheet pan.
Then while it cools, melt both chocolate chips in the microwave (using 30 second increments) and spread over the top of mixture in the cookie sheet. 
Place in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets and becomes firm. Cut into squares and enjoy(:
