Homemade Whatchamacallit KitKat Bars

I tried this recipe when I was in Montana and was immediately smitten.  My friend Veronica made them and of course I was too busy eating them to actually take a picture of them.  Oh darn, guess I have to make them again myself. :) I have to say, I'm not sure that I would call them KitKat Bars exactly, they are sort of like a Whatchamacallit Bar and sort of like a KitKat Bar but not exactly either one of those.  The one thing they are is G.O.O.D.

One of my favorite parts of this bar is the chocolatey topping.  I'm a huge fan of the chocolate/butterscotch flavor combination.  My gramma makes a Special K bar that has a similar topping and I just can't get enough of it.

Brings back such good memories.
