Food Friday - Butterscotch Magic Bars

Butterscotch Magic Bars
adapted from a friend 

One of the mom's made these bars for the "mom snack" at Friday School this last semester and I had to remove myself from the snack table or I would have eaten the pan.  I am a sucker for anything Butterscotch then add Sweetened Condensed Milk and, well, I'm sunk HA!  They are so easy to make and just so darn tasty! 

2 cups crushed graham crackers (about 1 sleeve)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Mix all of the ingredients together and pour into a pan that is lined with parchment paper and very well greased 8x8 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  Allow to cool completely.

* A few pointers:
1) I am normally not one to use parchment paper but I learned from the mom who made these (as she had to pry them out of the pan) that these are sticky!  So parchment paper will save you a lot of work.  Once these had cooled, I just used the parchment paper to lift the whole thing out of the pan and set it on a cooling rack. 
2) These are not nearly as good warm.  They need to set up completely so allowing them to cool is the best thing to do.  Granted I may or may not have taste tested these well before they were cool :-)
