Sweet to Eat

This recipe is for those who can't eat chocolate and have a sweet tooth. It's easy to make too.

Family Friendly

This recipe is easy for the kids to make and have fun doing it too! We all loved it and was not as difficult as cheesecake but yet just as yummy!

Easy and Tasty

This is a quick and easy recipe to make when you need something quick and easy! The cheesecake isn't too sweet to combat with the taste of the butterscotch. The walnuts add a nice touch.



I have made these numerous times through the years; lost the recipe and now I've found it again here! They are absolutely delicious; a nice change from bars that tend to be too sweet. These are just right. Always a big hit when I bring them along to parties. Super flavor, wonderful texture, simple to make! I store them in the refigerator.
