Everyone loved these bars! I put butterscotch chips on half of the pan since my hubby isn't a chocolate fan. I loved the section in the middle where the butterscotch and chocolate overlapped a little!!

Good and easy. I didn't read recipe through and added chips to batter. However it turned out okay. I loosened up frosting a bit with cream as it didn't really drizzle. Thanks for this recipe.
