These dreamy Chocolate Peanut Butterscotch Bars are super chewy with a rich butterscotch flavor, a hint of peanut butter and creamy chocolate in every bite!


Let’s talk about butterscotch for a minute or two! I love it, but I feel like it just doesn’t take center-stage as often as it should and I kind of forget about it sometimes.

Well, I’ll never forget my beloved butterscotch now that I’ve baked and eaten these dreamy bars. They are nothing short of amazing! I dreamt about them the night before I baked them and I’ve been dreaming about them every night since. They’re chewy with a rich butterscotch flavor, a hint of peanut butter and some creamy chocolate in every bite.

  1. I made these today for my husband’s birthday and they were delicious! The picture looks like they are supposed to be like a chewy, moist brownie texture, but mine came out more like a cookie bar texture. I’m not sure why…?🤷‍♀️ Super yummy nonetheless!
