Chewy Butterscotch Brownies

March 3, 2015Teresa

Chewy Butterscotch Brownies are fantastic. Every now and then I browse different websites to see if I can find a recipe for a specific item I want to use in a recipe. Sometimes I just browse so I can find something easy. Nestle’s Very Best Baking is one of those websites. They always have terrific recipes and I can’t recall any of their recipes ever turning out poorly like sometimes happens from some food blogs or other websites. Chewy Butterscotch Brownies was the recipe I found and drooled over.

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for an E-A-S-Y recipe to make up for some cookies I wanted to send with John to friends. I am pretty particular when it comes to brownies. I have plenty of cake-type brownie recipes that I’ve tried and taste great. However, I really prefer to bake brownies that are rich, dense, and have more of a cookie-type batter than cake-type textures. From the pictures, Chewy Butterscotch Brownies looked like MY kind of a brownie! 🙂 Easy, yet dense and decadent. I was not disappointed.

Chewy Butterscotch Brownies turned out exceptionally well. For those of you who love butterscotch flavor in your cookies or brownies (or desserts), then you simply can’t go wrong with these amazing brownies. It took me about 10-15 minutes to get the batter into a baking dish and cooked in 30-40 minutes. The brownies came out superbly. They had wonderful texture because of the butterscotch chips and pecans, delicious sweetness, and the ease of making a brownie instead of rolling dough into balls for cookies. Win-win-win!

We have had the mildest winter in Dallas until a couple of weeks ago. Now every two to three days we are getting snow or freezing rain. It’s crazy! The weather forecasters are calling for 70 tomorrow and freezing rain the next morning. 🙁 We are spoiled here in the south. I’ve lived in New England and other cold climates before and know what it’s like getting a winter snow storm every three to five days all winter long! Boston’s really getting hit this winter, more than I can ever recall when we lived in that neck of the woods.

I bring up the weather because I always take my pictures outside. I take pictures in the heat of a Texas 110 degree summer day when all my chocolate chips melt on the dish. And I take pictures in the dead of winter when temperatures are sub-zero and I have to wear a hat, coat, and gloves to take pictures. Why do I do that, you ask? When we moved into this house a few years ago it had Low-E windows. Great for cutting costs on electric air conditioning bills in the summer, but horrible for allowing natural sunlight into the house. My pictures NEVER turn out well when I take them inside. So I trudge all my stuff out to my back patio table and take pictures out there, day in and day out, 365 days a year.

Sometimes this means the winds are so strong all my stuff is blowing around. Other times my hands are freezing. Still other times in the summer it feels like I’m getting bit up by creatures too small for the human eye to see. Yikes! Last weekend I took pictures for 7 different muffin recipes and 6 different breakfast casseroles for a breakfast I was catering for our church. I was outside in blustery, cold conditions for hours. Yes, I was wearing long johns and several other layers of clothing. Some of the time the snow was falling. But I think I managed to get some decent pictures and I’ll be trotting out those posts in a couple of weeks.

My husband has offered to set up a studio inside for me to take pictures. We’ll see if the manufactured light is as good as natural light. Regardless, the pictures for Chewy Butterscotch Brownies taken last week were taken outside on a cold, winter day, but thankfully you won’t find ice cubes or frost on any the pictures. 🙂

If you’re looking for an outstanding butterscotch dessert, then Chewy Butterscotch Brownies are incredibly good. I highly recommend you get yourself to the store and pick up a bag of butterscotch chips and make up a batch of these goodies really soon. They’re great for tailgating parties or afternoon snacks for your kids (if you allow them to eat sweets!) Regardless of what you make them for you’ll find yourself drooling over every bite of these sensational brownies. I sure did.

I used these ingredients.

The irony of this recipe is that while I found the recipe on a Nestle’s site, I couldn’t find Nestle’s butterscotch chips at the store last week so I used Hershey’s instead!

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add pecans and part of the butterscotch chips.

    My Granddaughter just turned Vegan, have any good desserts?

      Hi, Claudia. Not very many. I have one cookie recipe that doesn’t use eggs. While it calls for butter, you may be able to substitute coconut oil in its place. It’s called “Potato Chip Cookies”. I’ve used the recipe adding peaches and adding cherries before too (instead of potato chips). I do have a “strawberry rhubarb dump cake cobbler” that’s also vegan. It’s basically a dump cake recipe, but instead of using melted butter on top, I used oil. It turned out great. You can probably use any kind of dump cake recipe, any flavor of pie filling, and as long as you substitute oil for butter it would be vegan. Let me know how these turn out. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi! Thanks for another great recipe. Does a glass baking dish make a difference opposed to an aluminum or metal pan? Would a 9″x11″ work out o.k.? Or would they be too thick?

    1. Teresa

      June 21, 2018 at 6:09 am

      Hi, Claudia. I prefer cooking with glass because of the safety issue. (Aluminum causes memory loss and dementia). However, you can bake this in any kind of pan. A metal or aluminum pan will cook more quickly so start checking it before the time I suggest. Yes you can spread the cookie dough into a 9×11″ pan but it will be even thicker than a 9×13″. In that case you may have to cook it 5-10 minutes longer to get it to cook all the way through. Check it with a toothpick for doneness. Enjoy.
