White Chocolate Butterscotch Blondies

You will love this Butterscotch Blondie Recipe because not only is chewy, buttery and delicious…it is also loaded with white chocolate chips!

Wanna know a secret?

I don’t like butterscotch.  I know, I know.

The flavor is so strong and well..I don’t know.

I mean, I like butter…so it must be the scotch part that I don’t like.

I even googled “what is butterscotch?” and I have no idea why I wouldn’t like it ~ there’s butter, there’s dark brown sugar, there’s cream…actually it sounds a lot like caramel…which I LOVE.  So, yeah, I don’t know.

Maybe it’s because I think back to the weird old butterscotch candies that my grandma used to give me that had been at the bottom of her purse for decades.  I always had to pick pieces of lint off the candy before popping it in my mouth. But, my choices were between a decade old butterscotch candy or Clove gum.  Butterscotch won.  Clove gum, really?  Who’s brilliant idea was that?

So anyway, I have never been too keen on the butterscotch.  BUT it seems as though millions of you love it.  LOVE it..can’t get enough.

So when I got an email from a very nice butterscotch loving reader named Melanie, asking for a good butterscotch/white chocolate blondie recipe, who am I to let down the butterscotch masses?  That’s pressure.


So I made these bars, under duress, knowing I wouldn’t like them…not at all, not one bit.

Well, I was wrong.

As a matter of fact I will be making these again and again and again.  Because I kinda loved them.

The butterscotch is not strong…it just hangs out in the middle, making your mouth kinda happy and you don’t even know why.

I can’t call myself an official butterscotch convert, but wrapped up in a buttery, brown sugary batter doused with white chocolate chips, butterscotch suddenly became the ingredient that pulled them all together…the unifier, if you will.  Butterscotch, I give you a second chance.


White Chocolate Butterscotch Blondies

This batter goes together in a breeze.

Melt a stick of butter, add 1 cup of dark brown sugar, vanilla and an egg and mix them together.

Now melt 3/4 cup of butterscotch chips.

Mix that into the butter mixture.  Mix in some baking soda, salt and flour and when that is combined, add in your white chocolate chips.

Spread it in your pan…

and bake it up.  When it comes out it will look like this…

Wait for them to cool, if you can.  Then cut into squares.

Bite, exhale and repeat…over and over and over.

I replaced the butterscotch chips with butterscotch pieces because you can’t get the chips readily in the UK. It came out a bit gooey but super delicious. I added the other ingredients mixture into the saucepan with the melted butterscotch whilst still on a low heat otherwise I think it wouldn’t have mixed. Highly recommended.


This is my favorite blondie recipe that I’ve come across to this point, however, everytime i make them I need to cook them for way longer than 25 minutes, they are not nearly done at 25min, I think I’m cooking them for more like 45 minutes, does anyone else have this issue?

Just made these – they are DELICIOUS! Thanks for the recipe.

These look amazing!! I would love to attempt them. What size of pan did you use? Also, any tips on doubling the recipe?


Made these last night…fabtastic!! I did have to cook them a bit longer, but they were great:)


I made these for a Christmas party for my church, and they were amazing! Definitely a keeper!


I’ve noticed a couple of comments about these being undercooked. We used an 8X8 pan and baked them for 20 minutes. They were still *very* “jiggly” but the edges were done so I took them out, thinking they would continue to “bake” on the counter. That was not the case so we took the edges off and popped them back in the oven. Any other suggestions? they were delicious but the center was just inedible.


I bake these in a 9×12 pan and they *always* turn out perfectly! Love this recipe 🙂


Holy wow, these are awesome! I have been looking for a great blondie recipe for so long now. I have an idea in my head of how they should taste, and none that I’ve made to date have stacked up to that idea, but these….these are right on!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!


Thank you for a delicious recipe! Mine tasted great, but they turned out a little funny…They rose A LOT along the edges of the pan and not at all in the middle. I used a circular 9″ pan, so maybe that’s why. Thoughts? I really don’t know, but it made them tough to slice properly.

In any case, they were very tasty and have a great gooey texture with a crispy crust.

I made these a few days ago and they were fantastic. Someone above mentioned them being undercooked but I loved the way they were. It’s not cake. It’s got to have some goo. There was some goo so I was happy. Very happy. And there was butterscotch! And white chocolate! What more could you want. Thank you! 🙂

These were WONDERFUL!!! My entire house will forever be begging me to make these and I will prolly never say NO!!!! YUM!!! Thank you for this from every single on of us in the Maguglin household!!


This recipe would have been really good… had it been baked in a 8×12 pan. The corners were a little too crispy and the inside very gooey in a 9×9 pan. I willl make this again because although it wasn’t fully cooked, it was still very yummy, but ONLY in an 8×12 pan.




I have to thank you a TON! I made them and I LOVE them. This will definitely be a keeper recipe. I appreciate you trying out something that you are not fond of. My husband also does not like butterscotch but loved this recipe. It was quick and easy to make as well. Thanks fellow sugar lover!


These are seriously DELICIOUS! I changed the white chocolate for the new White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms and they were AMAZING! Your recipes are so great! I haven’t made on thing from your blog that I haven’t liked.

You know, I’ve never made a blondie in my whole life? I have to change that!


many people poo-poo both white chips and butterscotch chips, but i love them both. great bars!

Mackenzie@The Caramel Cookie

Now I know what to do with that bag of butterscotch chips that have been sitting in my pantry forever!


I made a similar butterscotch blondie when I made my butterbeer ones for the Harry Potter premier, and they were good. I think I might have to try yours just to compare…you know, for research purposes. 😉

I’m not much of a butterscotch person either, but something tells me that my tastebuds would make an exception for these blondies. They look drool-worthy! 😀


oh you. i already love butterscotch so i must be doomed.


I’ve never liked butterscotch either. But those look delicious and with a bag of white chocolate chips lingering in my cupboard, I’m going to have to try these!


You know, I think it’s cause of the white chocolate. That stuff is magical in so many ways.


I plan on not liking all of my recipes too. And I fail….miserably.
