These are great peanut butter bars and simple to make too. I used only chocolate chips for the glaze due to a food allergy. They turned out excellent and the kids loved them. Thx FloridaGrl.

These are better than a Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! I AM NOT KIDDING! I was a bit worried about the butterscotch in the glaze but it was really good. I will make it again and again and I won't change a thing. Thanks so much FloridaGrl for sharing, this recipe is a keeper! :)

VERY good!! I saw this recipe in the Aug/Sept 2007 Taste of Home mag and clipped it out to try. I used a 9.5x13.5 pan, so I had to add about 10 minutes to the baking time. I was a little dubious about the butterscotch chips (they're not my fave), but just the half-cup of them adds a different level to the chocolate glaze. Really good. I might add PB chips or some nuts to the bars if I made these again :)
