Grab the milk! It’s time for Butterscotch Brownies! These rich, thick, full of flavor blondie bars are perfect for any occasion and are super easy to make!
Sometimes you just need to curl up with a big plate of brownies, a glass of milk and good book. That’s how I felt yesterday.
We have had a crazy couple months. Our middle son, Nick, who plays baseball in college is (was) a senior. After 4 knee surgeries, we worked his way back and was ready to finish strong his senior year. So I was not going to miss a game. We traveled a lot! Even when there were home games, it was a 2 hour drive one way. But I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
This past weekend was his final game of his career on Friday and then on Saturday he walked across the stage and received his college degree. He is following his dream and staying in the athletic field, training other kids to follow his footsteps.
I’m one proud mama!
I kind of wanted time to stand still on Friday and Saturday. Have you ever felt that way?
But of course, time has a way of just slipping by. But not before we enjoyed a few of these Butterscotch Brownies.
This Butterscotch Brownie recipe is one I have been making for a long time. It’s rich – but not too rich, thick – we love them thick, and packed with creamy flavor. I wondered though when I was baking them – are they brownies or blondies? So I had to find out.
According to Examiner “A blondie is a rich, sweet dessert bar made with flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder, and vanilla, and may also contain walnuts or pecans.
Blondies resemble the traditional chocolate brownie, but are based on brown sugar instead of cocoa; they are sometimes referred to as blonde brownies.”
So technically, these are Butterscotch Blondies – but I really don’t think it matters, do you? These are simply delicious!
