Pour hot butter over butterscotch chips in large bowl and whisk until smooth. Stir in flour mixture in 2 additions until well combined. Spread mixture in prepared pan and sprinkle with additional butterscotch chips, bake until edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs attached, 17-19 min.
