  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. cloves

  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • ¾ cup butterscotch chips or raisins (I love the butterscotch chips!)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • CARAMEL FROSTING
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar

Instructions
  1. Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs.
  2. Sift dry ingredients and add to mixture.
  3. Blend well.
  4. Add the grated zucchini, nuts and chips.
  5. Pour into greased and floured 10x15 inch pan.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the a toothpick in center comes out clean.
  7. Take out of oven and while letting them cool, make the frosting.
  8. To make the frosting, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the sugar and bring to a boil for 2 minutes. (I always keep stirring it as I cook it)
  9. Add the milk and bring to a second boil. Remove from heat.
  10. Add the powdered sugar gradually, stirring well, until you get a good consistency to spread over the bars. I used all of the 1½ cups plus a little bit more.
  11. Frost the bars and cut into bars. This will make 30 bars.
  12. ENJOY!!!
