Scotch Bars

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mary the Disturbed

This was one of my mom's recipes, and one of the most popular dessert/cookie/snacks she made. It's ultra-simple and just about impossible to mess up unless you just flat-out burn it to a crisp.

these were good and VERY quick. i needed an emergency treat and whipped these up in no time. i put the chocolate chips on after and covered it to let them melt then spread them around and tossed nuts on and stuck it in the freezer to quicken the hardening.. i also added a few butterscotch chips to the top for fun.. thanks for a fun quick dessert that satified all.
