Want a dessert that will send you straight to the dentist? 
Wait, maybe that’s not how I should sell these…

Want a dessert that will have your children eating, laughing, and bouncing off the walls? 

Want a dessert that tastes amazing, looks fantastic and is easy to make? Better.

Want a dessert that has a dark chocolate fudgy brownie layer topped with crunchy kit kat candy bars and topped with melted butterscotch? 

Ahhhh there it is!
