Great! Used a white cake mix. 10 year old grand daughter made them and had a wonderful time. I'm not in a baking mood this year and this certainly fit the bill. Thanks for sharing a very good recipe. I like the cake mix for the crust much better than just flour recipe version. Gives it a little more cookie so you can actually pick up the cookie to eat it. Thanks a lot for posting.

This recipe couldn't be any easier. I melted the butter, which made it easier for the kids to spread into the pan. the first time we made it, we used leftover Christmas baking staples. It was so rich and delicious, I decided to use the basic recipe for a cookie exchange party. I will vamp it up with cranberries, pistachio, and white and dark chocolate instead of the milk chocolate and the butterscotch chips. ooh, or maybe dried apricot and walnut. yum.

5 stars! It's easy. It has very few ingredients, and it is delicious. Perfect for a Girls' Night get together or holiday party.

Excellent and easy. Only thing I added were some additional chocolate chips sprinkled on top right after it came out of the oven. This was for presentation purposes only. (The top is the same color as a bowl of oatmeal, ...so the chips added some color and a hint of what was inside) I passed the recipe along to 3 people who attended the party! A Keeper!
