Beautiful butterscotch chocolate squares

    45 min

    Sinfully rich and oh-so-moreish, these traybake treats combine chocolate, butterscotch, coconut and walnuts in a sweet creamy mixture baked with a digestive biscuit crumb base. Not for the faint of heart, but what delicously decadent dessert ever is?! Try different sorts of chopped nuts in place of walnuts for tasty variations.

    do you think i could substitute nuts for something else? We are a nut free house so any ideas be great they sound yum  -  10 Aug 2017


    HELPFUL TIPS THAT HELPED ME: If you're like me, you'll probably be thinking "this is way too sweet" while you put all those chocolate chips on top of the crust & YOU'LL BE RIGHT! LOL I think 1/2 cup of one or a little less than 1/2C of each is perfect!! If you do chocolate chips only, try using a mixture of semi-sweet and milk chocolate. It's an amazing blend that I always get comments on!!! Second, mine turns out perfect using just a 14oz (1 cup) can of fat-free sweetened condensed milk. Thought that may help someone when trying to decide what can to buy w/o pre-measuring. I just drizzled all over, and it covered it perfectly! Lastly, when I don't have a box of graham cracker crumbs, I just use quick oats, and it still turns out good! I like to individually wrap these in plastic wrap so the kids can just grab and go. I'd say "grab and share" but they'd prefer eating the whole thing themselves!  -  14 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are always the first to go during the holiday period. I usually increase the graham cracker crust so the bar has a more solid base and the chocolate and butterscotch chips to 1 cup vs 3/4 cup. Wonderful recipe!  -  10 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
