Butterscotch Salted Peanut Bars

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is one of the best bar recipes, they are very simple to put together and so good! --- make sure to use only salted peanuts, and leave them whole --- these freeze well

I love all of the ingredients in these bars. My only reason for rating so low, is they ended up rock hard. I prepared them exactly as written and had to throw the entire batch out.
