Butterscotch Brownies

Favorite brownies are not brown at all!

As I was looking through the food communities, I have to say I would like to have the inclination to do “pretty” fancy cake decorating, or super ornamental cupcakes.  However, it was a Butterscotch Brownie which spoke to me,.   Like “pick me” and “bake me, I’m delicious.” And I did and they were.

The recipe which caught my eye was by Linda Larsen of Busy Cooks Expert.  As she described the Butterscotch Brownies as an easy and super quick dessert.  I did add a cup of whole pecans to be broken up by the mixer.  Instead of icing, when brownies were done, I dotted the top with 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, put back into the oven for a few minutes, then used a spatula to spread the chocolate over the Butterscotch Brownies.  The edges were thick, crunchy and chewy and an extra treat without the chocolate icing.  The biggest problem – they didn’t last long.

A great snack or dessert for all ages –  Butterscotch Brownies.
