Yummy bar that tastes "grown-up." Originally came from a Pillsbury cookie booklet but I think that I've modified that slightly. Been making them so long I can't remember!

Excellent and super fast and easy. Used Honey Roasted Peanuts and it turned out great. Makes a big batch so was able to bring to my work and my husband was able to take some to his.

I was skeptical about these, I'm not sure why, but boy was I WRONG!!! I used salted peanuts instead of the mixed nuts as these were for my grandpa and he LOVES peanuts. I am not a huge fan of butterscotch, but these were great!! I'll try them with chocolate once to see how they are that way. Thanks for a yummy one, Laurie!!

I have made these bars twice now. They were very tasty, but REALLY hard to get out of the pan! I broke a knife into three pieces and the bars sure didn't look pretty once they were out. Yummy though.
