Butterscotch-Pretzel Bars


Yield: about 36 bars
Prep 25 mins
Chill 2 hrs

This sweet-salty dessert goes together quickly with a no-bake bottom and a topping of butterscotch pieces and whipping cream heated on the stove.


Nonstick cooking spray

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

6 tablespoons butter, melted

2 cups crushed pretzels (about 6-1/2 ounces)

1 11 – ounce package (about 2 cups) butterscotch-flavored pieces

1/4 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup coarsely crushed pretzels

1/2 cup chopped peanuts


Line a 13x9x2-inch pan with foil. Lightly coat the foil with cooking spray; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, stir together powdered sugar, peanut butter, and melted butter. Stir in 2 cups crushed pretzels.

Press mixture firmly into the bottom of prepared pan.

In a heavy medium saucepan, combine butterscotch pieces and whipping cream. Stir over low heat until pieces are just melted.

Carefully spoon and spread butterscotch mixture over crumb mixture in pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup coarsely crushed pretzels and the peanuts evenly over butterscotch mixture; press gently.

Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Cut into bars to serve. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
