Years ago my BFF, Kellie, gave me a recipe for Butterscotch Brownies. Two decades later, and the recipe is one of our favorites. May 9th is Butterscotch Brownie Day, and this recipe celebrates it and friendship.
Butterscotch Brownies are also known as “Blondies” or Brookie (brownie + cookie) in the free world.
I can easily eat the entire pan, in front of my family, with a smile on my face and not even care that they are getting none of the delicious, chewy, mouth-watering, brown-sugary goodness we call Butterscotch Brownies! The are the perfect treat or sweet any time of day.
Eat them as they are or try adding 3/4 cup pre-crushed Heath Bar bits, semisweet chocolate morsels, mini-marshmallows, Reeses Pieces or diced apples. Let your imagination run wild and reinvent this delectable dessert over and over in your kitchen.
