  • Cooking Spray
  • cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 6 tablespoons Butter melted
  • 2 cups Crushed Pretzel Sticks
  • 11 ounces Butterscotch-flavor Chips 1 bag
  • 1/4 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup Coarsely Crushed Pretzel Sticks


  • Line a 13x9 rimmed baking sheet with foil extending it over the edges. Lightly spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl mix the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and melted butter. Stir in 2 cups of the crushed pretzels. Using hands press the dough together to even out the mixture and then press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • In a medium saucepan melt the butterscotch chips with the evaporated milk, stirring continuously, until smooth. Use a spatula to evenly spread the butterscotch mixture on top of the pretzel layer. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of pretzels on top and press lightly.
  • Cover and chill for 2 hours. Gently pull the foil edges out of the baking sheet to remove. Using a sharp knife slice into squares.


After the bars are initially chilled they can be stored in an air-tight container. They don't have to be refridgerated.
