  • Heat butterscotch chips and butter together in a saucepan, stirring frequently, over low heat until melted, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir graham cracker crumbs into butterscotch mixture. Measure 2/3 cup graham cracker-butterscotch mixture and set aside; press remaining mixture into the prepared baking dish to form a crust.

  • Beat cream cheese in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk, egg, and vanilla extract; mix well. Pour cream cheese mixture over crust. Sprinkle reserved graham cracker-butterscotch mixture over cream cheese mixture layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

this was good but I might have put a little more than 2 cups graham cracker in which may be why it was a little dry and crumbly. I would like the cheesecake part to be a little thicker so I am thinking next time I will make in a smaller pan, put a little less crust and make sure it's the right measurement. also, I was out of butterscotch chips so I used chocolate chips.

I am certainly in the minority because I did not care for these. The crust was too hard and the bars were too thin. Don't think I would make these again. Read More

I found this recipe and made it on a whim. Butterscotch to me is a holiday flavor and the gold tone of the dessert made me think it might make a nice addition to the Thanksgiving treat table. First off Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars is an easy dessert to make - no unusual ingredients and no difficult prep steps. I always appreciate no fuss no muss desserts especially ones that taste as good as these bars. If you're a butterscotch fan you'll love the way your kitchen smells while these buttery bad boys are baking. The word "mouthwatering" springs to mind. The best part is the Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars taste every bit as good as they smell; subtly salty sweet melt-in-your-mouth goodness in every bite. For those bakers who are big fans of Magic Bars (that glorious layered concoction made with sweetened condensed milk baking chips coconut graham cracker crumbs et al) Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars may pack the the same sweet punch. Five shiny gold stars! Read More
