Christmas Dream Bars

If your Christmas miracle hasn't happened yet this season, let me get the ball rolling for you. (...make these....) 

While this isn't a totally original recipe (modified from here), I am incredibly joyful with their creation all the same (yes, joyful).  I was slammed in between hosting my family for Thanksgiving and heading out for yet another Far East Asia work trip...and I needed something delicious, incredibly quick, and incredibly easy for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  So, while I like coming up with recipes that illustrate my lifelong obsession for ooey gooey decadent desserts,  it turns out I also really like finding super easy recipes that lend themselves to my sometimes hectic life.  These can be made in under 30 minutes from start to finish, and eaten in under 30 seconds.  Some real efficiency here.  I added a teaspoon of vanilla into the sweetened condensed milk, omitted the nuts and chocolate chips, and added lots o' butterscotch chips (KEY) and M&Ms instead.   Happy Holidays!
