Chewy and fudgy blondies filled with butterscotch chips. A super easy and mega satisfying dessert that everyone will love!
I have always loved the flavor of butterscotch! It’s one of my favorite ice cream toppings, and if you put butterscotch chips in a cookie then I’m grabbing more than a few of them. I remember in high school going to a local restaurant with my friends every so often and they had the most amazing blondie dessert there. At the time I never even knew what a blondie was, but I did know that it was one of the best things I had ever tasted. I spoke to the manager one day and asked what exactly this was and he explained that a blondie was just a vanilla brownie, not made with chocolate. Theirs was a bit more special because they added butterscotch chips to it. I agree, it was special!
WHAT INGREDIENTS WILL YOU NEED?
- Brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- All-purpose flour
- Butterscotch chips
There are many blondie recipes floating about, but I personally like mine more fudgy than cake like. Adding in an extra egg yolk will give that fudgy richness without the greasiness. The batter will be a bit thick, so I do recommend beating it vigorously to be sure you’ve got a smooth even texture.
These fudgy little blondie treats are perfect for a quick home dessert, but also work really well for birthday parties, after-school snacks, and if you need to whip to a quick tasty treat to take to a school or church function.
Can I Freeze Butterscotch Blondies?
You absolutely can freeze them! Bake as directed then allow to cool completely. Once cooled place them in an airtight container or a sealable freezer bag. If placing them in a bag lay them flat and try to get out as much air as possible. You can freeze them for up to 3 months. If you slice them before freezing it will make it easier to serve as singles straight from the freezer. Just take a couple out and allow to come them to room temperature then enjoy!
How To Know When Blondies Are Done
It’s pretty easy to know when your blondies are done baking. When you see them start to pull away from the edges of the pan, you’ll want to grab a toothpick and genty insert it into the center then pull up. If the toothpick comes out completely clean then your blondies are done. If your toothpick comes out with some of the blondie mixture stuck to it you’ll want to allow a bit more time to bake.
