Chewy Butterscotch Nut Bars

Submitted By: Sherrell Hickman


  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces or coarsely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup buttermilk biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup buttermilk biscuit mix


In a 1-quart, wide-mouth glass jar, gently layer and pack ingredients in order listed, beginning with butterscotch chips. Make sure brown sugar has a uniform texture and firmly pack it in the jar to prevent baking mix from sifting through it.
If there is any space left after adding the last ingredient, fill remainder of jar with more butterscotch chips or pecans. Place pretty fabric over lid; secure in place with ribbon or raffia. Decorate as desired.
