I made these to take to a party and everybody loved them. Cut small because they are rich. I used chocolate chips instead of butterscotch and only had dark corn syrup so used that in place of white. I liked that they were sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. The texture of the topping layer is chewy and wonderful. I'm giving four stars instead of five because, while tasty, I though the crust was a little too greasy-rich. Next time I make these I will probably reduce the butter by a couple of tablespoons and a bit of water so the crust still holds together.
