Butterscotch Toffee Vanilla Bean Cheesecake Bars are a dessert perfect for fall, from the colors to the combination of flavors.
The inspiration for this Butterscotch Toffee bars recipe came about one day while reorganizing my pantry and kitchen cabinets. Before I start my fall baking, I like to take out the partially used bags of chips, nuts, candies, and any other ingredients in my cabinets. There are always some leftovers from holiday baking.
I usually lay them out on my counter and move them around beside each other to see what combination sounds good together. The butterscotch chips were my main ingredient inspiration. A small amount of toffee bits were the next ingredient I wanted to use. I also added a few white chocolate chips that I found.
I also found a box of this GODIVA White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Pudding Mix. In the spring I had used a box of this in a strawberry cake recipe and it was so delicious. The recipe now had a direction.
Combine a yellow cake mix,the pudding mix, oil, and egg in a mixing bowl. Mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup for topping and press remainder into a parchment lined baking pan. (Brownie pan).
Bake crust 10 minutes, allow to cool. Beat together cream cheese, egg, and sugar. Fold in part of the toffee bits. Spread over crust, top with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle butterscotch chips and remaining toffee bits. Return to oven for 1 minute.
Cool on a wire rack 1-2 hours or until cool. Remove from pan by parchment paper and cut into desired size bars.
These Butterscotch Toffee Vanilla Bean Cheesecake Bars are a great addition to any fall get together.
