To cut down on the sweetness factor, I only used about 2/3 cup butterscotch chips. I filled the rest of the 1 cup measure with cinnamon chips. After baking I sprinkled most of a 12-oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate chips on top and covered with a baking sheet so they would melt, then spread them over the top. Into the freezer to set this topping--it took about 40 minutes. Made them late last night and they are going fast!
