Gluten Free Butterscotch Toffee Bars

Dessert bars are just a wonderful creation.  They are so great to take to a potluck or put in the kid's lunches.  I love not having to do multiple batches, like you have to with a cookie, but get just as good results.  These Gluten Free Butterscotch Toffee Bars are no exception.  Easy to make and take, and they taste oh so good.  Although I don't bake with it much, I really like butterscotch.  Of course you know how much I love toffee and chocolate if you have looked at any of the posts on this blog!

Gluten Free Butterscotch Toffee Bars
You can really use any kind of crunchy gluten free cookie you like for the crust on these bars.  I used a gluten free snickerdoodle cookie as the crust.  It just needs to be a crunchy cookie and not a soft cookie.  You could also chose whatever nuts you have a world of opportunity before you when you make these wonderful Gluten Free Butterscotch Toffee Bars!  I hope you do try them out.

2 cups of crushed gluten free snickerdoodle cookies (or any gluten free cookie)
6 Tbsp. (3/4 stick) butter, melted
1 cup butterscotch chips (make sure they are gluten free)
1/2 cup pecan pieces
1/2 cup chopped or slivered almonds
1/2 cup of crushed Heath Bar or chocolate toffee bits
1/2 cup mini or regular semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, leaving a 1-inch overhang.  Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Place cookies in food processor; process until crumbs form.  Measure 2 cups.

Combine 2 cups of crumbs and butter in medium bowl; mix well, press crumb mixture evenly onto bottom of prepared pan.  Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned around edges.

Meanwhile, combine butterscotch chips, pecans, almonds, toffee bits and chocolate chips in a medium bowl.  Whisk condensed milk and vanilla in a small bowl; pour over warm crust.  Sprinkle with butterscotch mixture, pressing down gently.

Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden and bubbly.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Remove from pan using foil; cut into bars.
