Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars with Brown Sugar Glaze
These Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars with the brown sugar glaze are so decadent and rich you will not believe you have never made them before. They are so ooey-gooey and perfect. Do not even think for a second about not making the brown sugar glaze. Of course, the bars are perfectly delicious on their own, but the glaze really takes them to the next level.

While your bars are baking, let's start the brown sugar glaze.
Directions for Brown Sugar Glaze:
First, get out a small saucepan place it over high heat and melt the butter.
Now, once the butter is melted, add the brown sugar and bring to a boil. When boiling, lower the heat to medium and stir for 2 minutes.

After the mixture is boiling, remove from the heat and let it come to room temperature.
When it is at room temperature, mix in the powdered sugar with your mixer. Add 1 tablespoon of warm water if needed to get to correct consistency.
Pour the glaze over the bars and spread evenly, you want each bar to get some of this amazing glaze!
