  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, 1 cup butter, the vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour. Press evenly in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until light brown. Cool 20 minutes.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat corn syrup and 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture boils. Stir in chips until melted.
  • 3
    Immediately spread butterscotch mixture over baked layer. Sprinkle with candies and nuts; gently press into butterscotch mixture. Cool at least 2 hours until butterscotch mixture is firm (do not refrigerate). For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips

Cut bars into triangles or diamonds for variety.

Shiny aluminum or gray, nonstick-coated metal pans are preferred for baking bars. Because heat is reflected, these pans prevent the crust from getting too brown and hard.
