Cake Mix Butterscotch Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This recipe is so easy and good too (unfortunately, not diabetic, tho!) I love butterscotch (not as much as I love caramel, but it's close). When cake mixes go on sale, my family stocks up for quickies like this. They are also the base of some of our favorite pot-luck type dishes. This one might be your next pot-luck take-a-long. This one is with compliments from one of my best friends, Betty Crocker.

These really stuck hard on sides of baking pan. Should of sprayed pam on pan. We found these to be really too sweet for us..
