Butterscotch {Cookie Dough} Fudge Bars

Wow! I could not stop eating these. These butterscotchy, fudgy cookie doughy bars are such a treat. I adapted it from this pin. I didn't have enough toffee chips so I substituted them with butterscotch chips and M&M's. They turned out so delicious! Worth the two hour cooling period to enjoy!

Butterscotch {Cookie Dough} Fudge Bars
Recipe by Bonne Nouvelle

Yield: 24 2" bars
1/2 C butter, melted (revised 11/12)
2 1/3 C graham cracker crumbs 
(about 2 packages plus 3 more crackers), DIVIDED (revised 11/12)
1 1/2 cup butterscotch chips, divided
1 roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough, or half batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough
1 12oz. bag chocolate chips
1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 T butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup mini M&M's

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 
If using store bought cookie dough, allow the cookie dough to sit out for 10 minutes to soften. Meanwhile, grease 9x13 glass dish. 

In a small mixing bowl, stir together the 1/2 cup of melted butter, 2 cups of the graham cracker crumbs (reserve 1/3 cup for topping) and 1 cup of butterscotch chips. Pour mixture into the greased pan and press evenly until mixture covers bottom of pan. Refrigerate while you prepare the fudge.

In a 2 qt saucepan, heat the milk, chocolate chips and the tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Stir frequently until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. With a spatula, spread the mixture over the graham cracker crumb mixture.

In another medium mixing bowl, break up the cookie dough and stir in the remaining 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs until blended. Crumble the mixture evenly over the chocolate layer and the sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup butterscotch chips on top. Then sprinkle M&M's on top.

Bake for about 25-35 minutes or until it's golden brown. Cool completely before cutting, around 2 hours.
