  • 1 12-oz package Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 6-oz package Nestle butterscotch morsels
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt half of the semi-sweet chocolate morsels over hot (not boiling) water, and set aside. In another pan, melt thee butterscotch morsels over hot (not boiling) water, and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, and set aside. In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract, and beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in flour mixture. Stir in nuts. 

Divide batter in half, and blend melted butterscotch morsels into one half. Spread into well greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.  Blend melted chocolate morsels into remaining batter.  Spread evenly over butterscotch layer. 

Bake 35 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle remaining chocolate morsels evenly over the top.  Let set for 5 minutes to soften morsels, then spread evenly over top.  Cool completely. Cut into 2x1-inch bars.  Makes 4 dozen bars.
