Choco-Butterscotch Bars; A Gift from the Divas

Written By Pam Brandon and Anne-Marie Denicole On December 19, 2011

Choco_butterscotchThe divas are experts at keeping cool – we love leaving the oven off and making homemade goodies that only look complicated, a splurge with so little effort. This dreamy recipe has a little bit of everything: chocolate, salty pecans, peanut butter and whipping cream – what’s not to love?  

Forget a bottle of wine as a hostess gift, wrap these bars in a pretty container and share the love. Happy holidays! 


Choco-Butterscotch Bars

Makes 3 dozen

6 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar

1 cup crushed chocolate graham crackers

2 cups butterscotch chips

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup chopped salted pecans


Grease a 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking pan and set aside.

Mix butter, peanut butter and powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl until blended. Stir in wafer crumbs. Press into prepared pan, pressing down and smoothing surface; refrigerate.


Melt butterscotch chips and whipping cream in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth.


Spread over crumb mixture and sprinkle with nuts. Refrigerate about 2 hours, or until set. Cut in bars and store between layers of wax paper.
