Step 1: Combine all ingredients for the cookie crust except the chocolate chips. Mix well with a sturdy spoon until all ingredients are incorporated. Press the dough into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the surface of the dough. Gently press the chocolate chips into the dough.

Step 2: Bake in a preheated 350 F/177 C oven in the middle of the center rack for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Remove pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Spread the coconut evenly over the surface. Next, spread an even layer of mini chocolate chips followed by a layer of butterscotch chips. Slowly pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top. Finish with a layer of chopped cashews.

Step 4: Return the pan to the oven and bake for 25 minutes. The top will appear golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer the pan to the cooling rack. Cool for several hours before cutting. Bars refrigerate well for up to three days or freeze for up to a month.
