Butterscotch Brownies Ingredients
How to Make Butterscotch Brownies From Scratch

- Whisk in the brown sugar and vanilla extract until smooth.
- Then add in the eggs, whisk until completely incorporated.
- Stir in the flour just until combined.
- Finally, fold in the the remaining butterscotch chips.

- Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes.
- Let the bars cool almost completely before slicing and serving.
Tips for the Best Blondies Recipe:
- No need for any leavener in brownies or blondies. It will make the bars puff up too much creating a cake like texture rather than chewy, so skip the baking powder and baking soda.
- Don't overbake the blondies. Bake just until the edges are golden brown, starting to slightly pull away from the sides of the dish and the top of the blondies no longer have a wet and shiny look.
- Use a toothpick to check for doneness. Crumbs are ok as long as they are not wet.
- Take these blondies or any brownie up a notch and sprinkle them with some course sea salt once they come out of the oven.
How to Store and Freeze Brownies
Store the cooled and sliced brownies in an air tight container at room temperature. To freeze the brownies, place them between layers of wax paper in a freezer safe air tight container or zip top bag. For individual treats, wrap each square in plastic then place in freezer safe container or bag. Great a single brownie each time you want a sweet treat! Simply thaw at room temperature before enjoying these blondies.
FAQs About Butterscotch Brownies
Blondies are typically referred to as blonde brownies. They both have the same chewy, gooey texture but usually blondies will have no cocoa powder or chocolate.
Blondies are mostly chewy and yes gooey. To get that perfect texture, don't overbake the blondies. Once the edges are golden brown and starting to pull away from the edges of the dish and the top no longer looks wet they are done baking. The bars will continue to bake in the dish as it cools so under baking them just a bit is a must to get the perfect gooey fudgy texture.
Cakey blondies are usually from over mixing the batter once the flour has been added. Also, don't add a leavener because it will also puff up the batter as it bakes making it cakey.
There are many flavors that pair well with butterscotch. Adding some roasted pecans or walnuts to these brownies would be divine. As well as dark chocolate, white chocolate and even coconut.
