Fantastic Fudgy Butterscotch Bars

“This recipe comes from the "Pillsbury Best Cookies and Bars" cookbook and that book certainly lives up to it's name, these are *SOOOO* good and easy to make too! I have made these many times in the past they are a favorite at my house, just make certain not overbake them, they freeze excellent also :)”

  2. Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan.
  3. In a medium saucepan (can make in the microwave also), combine the chocolate chips, 2 Tbsp butter and sweetened condensed milk; cook over low heat until chocolate is melted, and the mixture is smooth (stirring constantly); set aside.

  5. Add in the brown sugar and eggs; whisk/blend well.
  6. Add in all the remaining ingredients (not the melted chocolate mixture) mix well.

  8. Drizzle/pour the chocolate mixture over the batter in the pan; carefully spread to cover.
  9. Drop the remaining batter by tablespoonfuls over the chocolate mixture (it does not have to cover completely).
  10. With a tip of a knife, swirl slightly to marble the mixture.
