Chewy Butterscotch-Oatmeal Bars

1 (12-ounce bag) butterscotch morsels

1 cup butter

1 cup packed light brown sugar

3 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups all–purpose flour

1 cup quick cooking oats

1 cup chopped, toasted nuts

1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Heat the butterscotch morsels and the butter in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring often until smooth.  Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.

Add the light brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla; stir until mixed.  Stir in the flour, oats, nuts, and salt, mixing well.  Pour into a 13 x 9-inch pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 

Cool completely before cutting
