Gooey Butterscotch bars

 Butterscotch bars should be gooey. And that’s what they are very gooey. I like anything gooey. And this recipe is wonderful and easy. I make them all the time with my little cousins.
  • Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling



  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) sugar cookie mix
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 14 ounces caramels
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup butterscotch chips or chunks
  • Butterscotch sauce  {to drizzle over the top}

  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar cookie mix, pudding mix, butter and egg. Press into an un greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until set.
  • In a large saucepan, combine caramels and milk. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in nuts and vanilla. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with butterscotch chips.
  • Cool completely. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.
