Butterscotch Bites!

I love surprising my children with a special treat after school.

Today's snack were these teeny tiny Butterscotch Bites which I adapted from a recipe I saw on Simple and Delicious.

Kids will love these, and safe to say that grown ups will too.

Butterscotch Bites

BUTTERSCOTCH BITES


6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butterscotch chips
2 tubes (8 ounces each) crescent rolls (I like the recipe version)
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
4-1/2 teaspoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a small bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, then stir in the butterscotch chips.

2. Open up each tube of crescent dough, then cut each tube into 4 rectangles. Spread with butter mixture. Roll up each rectangle jelly-roll style, starting with a long side.

3. Cut each into six 1-in. slices; place cut side down into two greased 8-in. square baking dishes. I just used a cookie sheet, so mine are flatter rather than looking more like little cinnamon rolls.
Bake at 375° for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.

4. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 4 dozen.

  6. I read your blog this morning and thought what an excellent treat surprise for the girls after school today -- 30 minutes before the bus came, I readied my ingredients and as I opened my baking cupboard - found out that I was out of brown sugar - with everything else ready to go - I substituted apricot preserves and it turned out SO SO SO yummy!! Thank you for a great recipe - and reminders of what fun it is to surprise our kiddos from time to time with homemade goodies!! :)
