One of the things that my husband most appreciates about me is my willingness to use butterscotch chips in baking. I can’t say for sure that it’s what has kept us happily married for 7 years, but I’m guessing it’s a factor somewhere. In case that’s true, I’ll continue buying those little gems AND I’ll keep baking with them.
That’s how this recipe came about – I was looking for a way to both satisfy his love of butterscotch AND my desire to bake enough cookie bars for him to take to work. I found a Monster Bar recipe, tweaked it and came up with this keeper!
And a keeper it is! I used chocolate chips. And peanut butter chips. And butterscotch chips. But you wouldn’t have to – if you only have a couple of those, that’s okay. If you only want to use 1 of those, that’s okay too. You just need about 4 cups of chips – whatever variety they are!
These are great as they mix up quickly. They don’t take long to bake. And they feed a crowd. Love having this one in my collection!
