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.

Wow these are really yummy! I baked them in an 8x11 pan so I had to leave them in the oven a few extra minutes. They smelled wonderful while baking and taste even better!! Thanks for this treat!

OH my, Amy, the Butterscotch Bars just came out of the oven and a few of the staff had to work overtime and they have already cut some of it off. I couldn't even cool it properly! LOL. Followed the recipe to the letter and used Smucker's Caramel Topping.From the little morsel that I tasted, it is splendid! Thanks for a fabulous dessert &/or snack, Diane
