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.
