These Butterscotch bars are littered with bits of scrumptious chocolate and they make the perfect dessert bar. The jar is really pretty when layered & easy to prepare.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup toffee pieces or butterscotch-flavored pieces
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Layer in a 1-quart glass jar or canister the following ingredients: brown sugar, chocolate pieces, flour, baking powder, salt, pecans and toffee pieces.
Tap jar gently on the counter to settle each layer before adding the next. Cover jar.
Store at room temperature up to 1 month. Or, attach baking directions and gave as a gift.
Baking directions: Grease an 8x8x2-inch baking pan. In a large bowl combine butter, eggs and vanilla. Stir in jar contents. Spread into prepared pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until set and golden brown and edges just begin to pull away from pan.
Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
