Chewy Salted Peanut Bars

Contributed By: Parker


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
2 cups lightly salted dry roasted peanuts
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 13x9-in. baking pan with foil, letting ends extend up sides; grease foil. In a small bowl, mix flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into prepared pan. Bake until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle peanuts over crust.
2. In a small saucepan, melt butterscotch chips, corn syrup and butter over medium heat; stir until smooth. Drizzle over peanuts. Bake until bubbly, 6-8 minutes longer. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Lifting with foil, remove from pan. Cut into bars.

Helpful Hints:

My rich bars are studded with the all-American peanut. I like to think famed peanut farmer Jimmy Carter would approve.
