How to Make Butterscotch Bonanza Bars


  • 1Prepare a 9x13" baking dish with food release spray. Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350*
  • 2Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, about one minute.
  • 3Add the light brown sugar and stir to combine.
  • 4Mix in the baking powder and salt, making sure they're thoroughly incorporated.
  • 5Mix in the vanilla and the beaten eggs.
  • 6Add the flour, about half a cup at a time, stirring after each addition.
  • 7Stir in the nuts.

    Mix in the butterscotch chips.
  • 8Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, and smooth evenly.

    Bake 20-25 minutes.
  • 9Remove from oven. Cool completely on a wire rack.

    Cut into brownie-size pieces.
  • 10NOTES:
    1)You can make light brown sugar by combining equal amounts of dark brown sugar and granulated sugar, or by mixing molasses into granulated sugar until it's the color you want -- light or dark brown.
    2) You could leave the nuts out, if you prefer, or use pecans instead of walnuts.
    3) If you're not a butterscotch fan, you could substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips, mini choc. chips, or use just 1 cup of butterscotch, and one cup of white or chocolate. The recipe is very versatile, but I recommend trying the original recipe first.
    4) If you really want to kick these up, use 1 c. walnuts, 1 c. butterscotch chips, and 1 c. white chocolate chips. Then frost, when cool, with melted chips (any flavor you like) mixed with 2-3 t. of coconut oil.
