I heard about how good these bars were before I acquired the recipe. Unbeknownst to me, my friend, Larissa, is practically famous for them! They are so ooey-gooey yummy!
When I make them, I add an extra half-cup of flour and add frozen chips so that the chips don’t all sink to the bottom, which makes them easier to take for picnic lunches, etc. They’re kind of addictive, so you might want to wait until company’s coming before you make them. Otherwise, you’ll be tempted to eat the entire pan!
1/3 c. butter or margarine
1 T. hot water
1 c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/8 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. shredded zucchini
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
1/3 c. + 1/4 c. butterscotch chips
Melt butter or margarine in hot water and let cool.
Add egg, brown sugar & vanilla, and mix well.
Add dry ingredients.
Add zucchini, nuts & chips. Spread in greased 8×8″ pan.
Sprinkle 1/4 c. butterscotch chips on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
(NOTE FROM LARISSA: The chips will stick to the bottom of the pan, but be sure to scrape that out and eat it…it’s the best part! YUM!)
