These Butterscotch Brownies are a recipe I’ve had since back in the 70’s. They take almost no time to mix up and make a nice occasional change from the usual chocolate brownie.

Sometimes you just need a little something sweet, don’t you? Whether it’s at the end of a meal, with a cup of coffee in the morning, or for an after school snack, a little sweet bite almost never goes amiss. And if it’s homemade and the recipe is super easy, then all the better.

Now, technically, I’m not sure whether I should call this a brownie or a blondie. It does have some chocolate in it, but that’s definitely not the predominant flavor.

They’re quite sweet and buttery so you can cut them into small squares and they’ll go a long way. I hope you’ll give these a try!

How to Make Butterscotch Brownies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9” square baking pan by greasing the bottom and sides.

Melting butterscotch chips in a small saucepan.

Melt the butterscotch chips with the butter in a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat, stirring constantly until all chips are melted. Set aside and allow to cool until just lukewarm.

Adding egg, sugar, and flour to melted chips.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butterscotch chips, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, and vanilla. Mix well with a wooden spoon.

Mixing in chips, nuts, and marshmallows.

Mix in the marshmallows, mini-chocolate chips, and pecans.

Mixture pressed into prepared baking pan.

Using buttered fingers, spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. The center will be soft but will firm while cooling. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar before serving.

  1. Way too many butterscotch blondie recipes don’t call for melting the chips. They’re just blondies with butterscotch chips. Imposters. ;) Absolutely love this recipe! I adore butterscotch.

  2. Yuuuuummmmm!! How amazing would these be, with a cup of hot coffee!! Great recipe :)

  3. For some reason looking at the ‘prep’ photos I had the urge to eat the dough! Could be I haven’t had dinner and I particularly like butterscotch. I wasn’t going to wait for those puppies to bake. Lol!

    I don’t normally talk about ME, but please take note of the slight name change from Wild Goose Tea. New web design too—whoopee and adding some new features along the way.

  4. I’m a big fan of butterscotch so I know this recipe would be a favorite of mine. I can’t wait to give it a go!

  5. I don’t care what you call it, I just wish I had a piece when my sweet craving attacked earlier today!
