Butterscotch Peanut Butter Bars/Squares

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by For Goodness Bake

These bars are more cake-like than cookie bars. The bottom layer is butterscotch while the frosting is creamy and peanut butter!

Quick and tasty ~ Because the peanut butter thinned only tasted like peanut butter, and was somewhat blah for me, I used 4 tablespoons evaporated milk, 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla as the frosting for the butterscotch bars. Made for 2009 Fall PAC ~ thanks FGB!
