"When the mood for something sweet strikes, I turn to these crunchy snacks packed with butterscotch flavor," reports Gayle Becker of Mt. Clemens, Michigan. "I usually have all the ingredients on hand, and they're so easy to make. Our toddler likes to help mix the dry ingredients and lick the bowl."
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + standing
