The main star of the recipe is the butterscotch topping. It takes the plain biscuit base to another level. It is delicious and heart-warming. Takes you back to your childhood days and parents might want to make this for their children. It's a sweet treat for all age groups.

My kids just loved this. They took it to the neighbors and they loved it. The butter scotch topping with walnuts is just fantastic. I could have easily had 10 of these bars. There something to that mouth feel and aroma.
