Rich Butterscotch Bars

Rich Butterscotch Bars

(I talked about this recipe here)

1 package (10-11 ounces) butterscotch chips
1/2 cup light butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 1 package graham crackers)
4 ounces light cream cheese, softened
4 ounces fat-free cream cheese, softened
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat the chips and butter on high for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until chips are melted, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
Add the cracker crumbs; set aside 2/3 cup. Press the remaining crumb mixture into a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray.
In a small mixing bowl, beat both cream cheeses until smooth. Add the milk, egg and vanilla; mix well. Pour over the crust.
Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake at 325° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Store in the refrigerator.

makes 16 medium-sized bars, 7 HUs per bar.
