We had a big dinner at our church the other night that my husband was in charge of making all the food for.

Which basically means… husband = wife. So I made the majority of the food. I won’t take all the credit. My husband did cook most of it, I just prepped and got everything ready. Including these yummy bars.

I can’t complain about these bad boys because they are actually REALLY EASY to make!

Of course you’ll want to grab some Challenge Butter (it’s a quality you can taste), a package of sugar cookie mix and some butterscotch pudding mix.

Combine that all together with an egg to form your butterscotch cookie base.

You guys… think of all the flavor possibilities with this!! Banana cookie base with a custard topping… that’s gotta happen!

But first, make these bars!!

While the cookie is baking you’ll whip up a some caramel sauce. Just melt down some caramels with a little evaporated milk over the stove top (the microwave works too), and once it’s smooth, stir in some nuts and spread it over the bars!
