Man Shares His Grandma's Recipe for 'No-Bake Butterscotch Bars' and They Look To-Die-For

When a recipe is so good that it's handed down over generations, we prepare ourselves for greatness. And when a vintage recipe comes straight from Grandma and it uses butterscotch, it’s time to listen very carefully. TikTok content creator @wyseguide shares his grandmother's butterscotch bar recipe, and everything about it is making us feel so good!

This recipe will become a favorite in your family, too!

We love the flavor of butterscotch in the fall! This easy recipe doesn’t even require turning on the oven, and we are thrilled about that as well. The only challenge we anticipate is waiting for these bars to set for 1-2 hours in the fridge. We must find our patience; it’s going to be worth it!

To get started on this recipe, simply combine melted unsalted butter, sugar, eggs, graham cracker crumbs, mini marshmallows, and shredded coconut. For that to-die-for topping, melt butterscotch chips with smooth peanut butter. We're confident that we could be happy eating the topping with only a spoon! It just sounds dreamy! 

Some in the audience didn't like the use of the coconut in this recipe, and @quirlin1016 asked, "Have you ever substituted anything else for the coconut? Rice Krispies maybe?" We think that might work, or maybe try using finely chopped nuts, or another dried fruit instead. Viewer @kittykeenanharris commented, "These sound like what Autumn should taste like." Yes, we feel the same way.

For us, this recipe feels like a fond memory from our childhood, and we can't wait to share this with a younger generation. That way, they can have the same sweet memories when they're older, too.
