If you like the taste of toffee apples in the fall, you will love this delicious bar recipe. These butterscotch apple cream bars are just scrumptious. They are sort of a cross between a toffee apple and a snickers candy bar. Bye bye diet!
I used butterscotch bits for my filling and topping which gives the bars a double dose of fall sweetness.
The bars are easy to make too. The crust is made of healthy old fashioned oats, not so healthy brown sugar, pecans and spices, as well as a generous helping of butter. (look out Paula Deen. You have some competition with this recipe!)
While the crust is hot, sprinkle with the butterscotch bits. This gives it a decadent flavor. while it is still hot.
Add your filling and then crumble the remainder of the crust over the top and finish baking.
The final step is to add the butterscotch drizzle for a decadent touch. So yummy.
And did I tell you that the house smells great while these are cooking? I opened that oven door just to breath in the yummy smell at one point. Divine!
I cooled these bars in the fridge and then just peeled off the aluminum foil and sliced them. Easy peasy and they came out into very nice squares.
