Christmas Recipes – Chewy Butterscotch Nut Bars in a Jar December 11, 2006

Chewy Butterscotch Nut Bars in a Jar

1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup pecan pieces, toasted and cooled*
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed**
1 cup buttermilk biscuit baking mix
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed**
1 cup buttermilk biscuit baking mix

Directions:
In a 1-quart wide mouth glass jar, gently layer and pack ingredients in the order listed, beginning with butterscotch chips. If there is any space left after adding the last ingredient, add more butterscotch chips or pecans to fill the jar. Place lid on top. Cut an 8-inch circle of fabric to cover lid; secure in place with a ribbon or raffia. Decorate as desired.

**After measuring the brown sugar, crumble it between your fingers for uniform texture. Be sure to pack the brown sugar firmly in the jar to prevent the baking mix from sifting down through it.

*To toast pecans, place in a microwave-safe dish and microwave on HIGH for 4
to 5 minutes, stirring every minute.
