Walnut Butterscotch Bars

Two of my husband's favorite things put into one sweet and crunchy, flavor-packed bar!


1 c. margarine, melted
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. butterscotch chips (plus 1 Tbs.)
1 c. chopped walnuts (plus 1 Tbs.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 pan with foil and non stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk the melted margarine, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla together. Add int he flour, baking powder and salt and stir until everything are well combined. Stir in the butterscotch chips and walnuts and the spread into the prepared pan in an even layer. Sprinkle the top with the extra butterscotch and walnuts. Bake for 30 to 32 minutes. Let cool fully before cutting into bars.

Meanwhile, stir 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 2 Tbs. heavy whipping cream together. Place a dollop on top of each bar and top with a piece of walnut.
