Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place butterscotch chips and butter into a glass bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes, stirring at 30 second intervals until smooth. Set aside to cool until firm.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

  • In a large bowl, beat the butterscotch chip mixture with eggs and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the batter until evenly mixed. Mix in the brown sugar, chocolate chips, walnuts, and raisins. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

  • Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, just until the bars begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cut into squares while warm.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

These bars have great flavor but were way too thin. Next time I will either double the recipe for a 9x13 pan or put the regular recipe in 8x8 pan. Also they seemed to need a little more flour so I will be adding about 1/2 c. to the written recipe. But the butterscotch and chocolate flavor combo was a huge hit! Read More

These bars are easy to make and simply delicious! The only comment I would make is that the recipe is a bit confusing. The list of ingredients says "2 tablespoons" eggs and the directions don't say when to add the brown sugar and the nuts. So I used 2 eggs added the brown sugar with the eggs and vanilla and the nuts with the chocolate chips at the end. Chewy and yummy! Thanks! Read More

These tasted great. However if you are looking for something flavored butterscotch this isn't the way to go. I cooked them for 3 extra minutes sucessfully. Also the first time I followed the directions exactly with the butterscotch chips but they turned out burnt. I then restarted and only cooked them for 1 minute 50 seconds. Read More

These are super easy to make and very sweet! They have a chewy texture more like a brownie. The batter is really smooth and it didn't look like it would fill the pan but it worked great. I think white chocolate chips would be a good addition. I did not think raisins would be a good combo with the butterscotch so I skipped them. Big hit with the kiddos! Thanks. Read More

This was a really easy recipe - and it was really good! It really is a 'throw-in-whatever-you-have' type recipe and I added chocolate chips and crushed pecans and it was delicious. I took previous reviewers' advice and cut the brown sugar in HALF and it was perfect! TIPS: When melting butterscotch: Someone said they chucked it because it was curdled - don't chuck it! Just keep melting and stirring! It won't be smooth the way chocolate chips are when you melt them in the microwave. The butterscotch may look grainy but don't worry just keep stirring and melting in 30 second intervals. Once you mix in the eggs and vanilla extract it'll become smooth and shiny. You'll be fine and you won't regret it! Read More

This recipe was easy to make and was a hit over Christmas. They are at their very best once they've cooled but keep them out of the fridge if you like them chewy! Read More

I found these a little sweet and a little chewy for my taste. However my husband raved about them like you wouldn't believe! I took them to a dinner party and they were received well there too. I skipped the raisens and found that in my oven 21 minutes was enough. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
