We call these Scotcharoos and they are very good. If I had read the recipe before I ate them I probably would have wanted to omit the butterscotch chips. I had them at a gathering and thought they were fantastic so I got the recipe. Was surprised to find the "secret ingredient" that made them so good.

These were such a big hit at my daughter's field hockey game. I should of made more to sell at the concesion stand. LOL

These bars are truly very yummy and are going very well in my house. The only thing that I omitted was butterscotch chips for 2 reasons, viz, I don't get them where I live(in Oman) and secondly, I don't like their taste all that much(I have tried them earlier when someone sent them to me from US) so even if I had them, I wouldn't use them anyway. I LOVE choclate chips(I used the semisweet variety) and they added their own charm to this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
