I added mini chocolate chips as I didn't have the right amount of butterscotch chips. It turned out delicious. My kids loved it too. I drizzled smuckers caramel sauce on top.

I made several variations of this recipe and they all went over really well at work. It's super simple and quick to throw together. I had a hard time getting them to cook in the middle, but I am...

I made these as directed only used half butterscotch and half chocolate chips. Also added minced pecans. Baked for 20 minutes only. Outstanding!

Definitely will make again. Super simple. Might add coconut next time. But this is for a family get together and several don’t eat coconut. So left it out.

I made these for a charity bake sale and they all bought in a short time. People came back and bought seconds.

Didn't change a thing except I used Betty Crocker French Vanilla, store did not have Dunkin Hines. Super easy, very sweet.
