This recipe was a big hit. A lot of people said they had never thought of oatmeal and butterscotch. I made these after watching an episode of Warehouse 13, when Leena had asked Artie if he had eaten all of the oatmeal scotchies. I started thinking, “I have oatmeal and butterscotch chips, I could make those!” So I did. This is the Nestle Toll House recipe for them.
