Blissful Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars
I only make these only once or twice a year as they are so rich & decadent and I love, love, love to indulge in the combination of cheesecake & butterscotch.
The original recipe a friend gave me in December of 97 and I lost touch with her years ago but always think of her when I get this recipe out to make. Since then, I have updated the recipe and the name to make it over the top sensational with flavor and a double layer of cheesecake was a must!
This is still by far one of my all time favorite desserts. Go ahead and indulge just a little.
- 1 pkg
- (12 oz.) butterscotch morsels
- 1/4 c
- butter & 1 tbsp. of butter
- 1 1/4 c

In saucepan (best in double-broiler) or microwave melt 1/2 pkg of butterscotch morsels & margarine. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and 1 cup of pecans.
(Grease bottom and sides of pan to avoid bars from sticking.)
Mix well. Then, stir in the remaining butterscotch chips into cream cheese mixture & pour over graham cracker crust. Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
5 to 10 minutes after removing from oven add your toffee chips, 1/2 cup of chopped pecans on top.
Cool & then chill before cutting into bars. Refrigerate any remaining bars.
