Love this recipe, people ask me to make it all the time.

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!

This is one of my favorite go-to recipes. Whenever I take it to church get-togethers there is never any left. It has won first prize for the Cookies, Bars, and Pastries category. I use salted cashews. It makes it less sweet and gives that wonderful sweet, nutty, carmamel, salty flavor. Thanks Land O' Lakes, great recipe!

It was very sweet. I didn't have a square pan, so instead I used a standard 8 by 13. I didn't have enough topping, so I doubled it. Fortunately, I had enough to triple, cause I definately needed to. I don't know if there would be enough topping otherwise.

Teens love theses bars! Cool completely before removing.

When I served these, most people commented on how sweet they were. "Good, but very sweet". Children liked them more than the adults did.
