Butterscotch Gooey Nut Bars

I had a bag of sugar cookie mix and wanted to try this recipe. It was very good! I took it to FPU and a ladies lunch.

1 package (17.5oz) sugar cookie mix Beth used a 22 oz pouch
1 package (3.4oz) instant butterscotch pudding mix
½ cup butter, cold
1 egg
1 package (10oz) caramels
½ cup evaporated milk
1 cup roasted macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1 cup roasted cashews
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar cookie mix, pudding mix, butter and egg.  Using 2 knives or a pastry blender, cut the ingredients together until little pieces form.  Press into an ungreased 9”x13” baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until set.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan,Beth did this in the microwave, combine the caramels and milk over medium-low heat, stirring often until melted and smooth. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the nuts and vanilla extract.

Pour the caramel mixture over the top of the crust. Sprinkle with the butterscotch chips and let cool completely. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
