These are a very rich, bar type cookie. Easy to prepare, a favorite with young and old alike. Great for picnics, potlucks, holiday cookie trays or any get together. Warning!! They can become "addictive" ;)

Dee, these are so sinful! I made them for the Pick a Chef thread. My husband and I pigged out on them! We couldn't even wait for them to cool completely, which was ok, they're nice and gooey that way. Very easy to make, quick to cook, there isn't anything bad about these. Except not being able to stop eating them! Thanks!

These are outstanding. I double the recipe in a 9 X 13 pan. Increased baking time about 5 minutes. These also freeze well and can be made ahead of time and thawed to serve. Really easy and delicious!

These were really good and I doubled the recipe to make a 9x13 pan. Next time I am going to use only half the amount of both butterscotch and chocolate chips as I found it a bit too sweet. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
