Ooey Gooey Bites

Thought I would catch the trend and put one of our
new favorite recipes on the blog to share....
Dean gives it a thumbs up!

We can't get butterscotch chips in Poland,
but Christine included a bag in a recent
package that she sent over.
This was an excellent
use of those little treasures.

Gooey Mixed Nut Bars
1 1/2 C. flour
3/4 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. plus 1 T. butter
1 C. butterscotch chips
1/2 C. light corn syrup
1 can salted mixed nuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender, cut in 1/2 C. butter until mixtures resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture evenly into ungreased 11 x 7" baking pan to form a base. Bake for 15 to 18 min til edges are light brown.
In a 2 quart saucepan, combine remaining 1 tablespoon butter, the butterscotch chips and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until chips are melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. sitr in nuts. Spread mixture evenly over base. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes more until edges are bubbly.
