Butterscotch Peanut Bars

I made these to take to my open house at school. Very easy, makes a large batch and tastes great!



Butterscotch Peanut Bars

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups salted peanuts
TOPPING:
1 package (10 to 11 ounces) butterscotch chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon water


Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with aluminum foil. Coat
the foil with cooking spray; set aside.

In a small bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix
well.

Press into prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 6 minutes. Sprinkle
with peanuts.

In a large saucepan, combine topping ingredients. Cook and stir over
medium heat until chips and butter are melted. Spread over hot
crust. Bake for 12-15 minutes longer or until topping is bubbly.
Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 4 dozen.
