Teri's Memorial Day Butterscotch Bars

 I am happy to be back here at Bacon Time with the Hungry Hypo visiting with Mindie and all of you! It's almost Memorial Day and I thought these bars would be a fun way to start off the summer! It's time for fun, sun and picnics with lots of great friends and food! These Memorial Day Butterscotch Bars come together quickly and are the perfect treat for your get togethers!

Memorial Day Butterscotch Bars
1 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 cup Butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 Egg
2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
2 tablespoons Butter
1/2 package Butterscotch Morsels
1 1/2 cups-2 cups total of red chocolate chips,
blue mini m and m's, white star marshmallows, and nuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and egg.
Stir in the flour.
Using a 13x9 pan, cut a piece of parchment paper
a little wider than the pan. Place it in the pan, and let it extend
over the edges. Spray some pan spray in a few places
and it will help hold the parchment so it won't slip.
Pour your batter in to the pan
Bake for about 20 minutes until light brown. Let cool.
Heat your corn syrup, butter and butterscotch morsels
over low heat stirring until the morsels are melted. 
Remove from heat and let it cool for 10 minutes.
After it is cooled, spread the butterscotch mix 
over the baked layer.
Add your red chocolate chips, m and m's,
 marshmallows, and nuts. Lightly press them into
 the butterscotch mix. 
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.
Once firm, cut into small pieces. 

Eat and enjoy!
Thanks for joining me today!
