Baking with Butterscotch

Do you ever get tired of baking with chocolate?
I know I do.
That’s why I decided to buy some Butterscotch chips and try those out.
Now of course I didn’t abandon Chocolate chips entirely but this definitely created a new pair of deliciousness for the taste buds!

You Need:
3/4 C. Butter/Margarine softened
3/4 C. granulated sugar
3/4 C. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1-1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups rolled oats
1-3/4 cups (11oz) Butterscotch chips
1/4 C. Chocolate chips

First preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
Second beat together butter and sugars in a large bowl until blended.
Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Gradually add to butter mixture and beat until well blended (Gotta whip those bad boys into shape!).
Stir in Oats.

Grab a 9X13 glass pan and spray with nonstick cooking spray

Spread 1/2 the mixture in the pan and set the rest aside.
Now: Take the butterscotch chips and melt them!
(those poor little ones didn’t even see it coming!)

You do this by setting the stove top to the lowest heat setting possible.
Grab a small sauce pan (preferably non stick) and add the BUTTERSCOTCH chips (not chocolate) to the pan and place on stove. Stir continuously until chips are completely melted and there are not chunks.
Pour this over the mixture in the pan and spread evenly.

Then pour the rest of the oat mixture in the pan, spread evenly.

Lastly top it off with the chocolate chips- sprinkle evenly and put in the oven.

Bake for approximately 12 minutes.
You may need to add time just until a knife comes out clean (confessions from the murderer).
