I always associate butterscotch with two things: one is those butterscotch candies in the yellowish gold wrappers that come in your grandparents' candy dish (with those awesome strawberry candies and everything else is gross). The other is my brother. I remember it always being his flavor of choice in childhood. I feel like butterscotch is an under-used and under-rated flavor in baking, so I decided to change that with this recipe for Butterscotch Blondies.
How to make Butterscotch Blondies
These blondies use both butterscotch sauce and butterscotch chips for double butterscotch deliciousness! As always, you'll start with beating together the butter and sugar. Next add in the eggs and butterscotch sauce, followed by the dry ingredients, and then you'll stir in the chips to finish the batter. Pour it into your pan and bake! Be sure to let them cool before cutting!
I honestly wasn’t sure if adults were fans of butterscotch because I always associate it with childhood, but I shared these with some friends and every single person gave them rave reviews. These are a must-make, first for yourself, and then for everyone you know!
