I've already posted for this recipe but I want to add a comment. To get a stronger butterscotch flavor I used dark brown sugar and added about 1Tablespoon or so of molasses (more for a stronger flavor). I also used butterscotch chips...it turned out wonderful. One of the things I like about this bar is that sometimes I end up with 2-3 different types of chips and this bar is great for using up different flavors of chips. I've used chocolate, white chocolate, peanutbutter, butterscotch...great!
