Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies

Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies

It is so good to be back in the kitchen baking and cooking after my trip to Italy. We returned Wednesday afternoon after a 21 hour trip. It was long. I was sick. I stayed cranky for a couple of days. Then by Saturday morning I had had enough. I said to myself I can either stay cranky or go to the kitchen and cook. What wonders it did. I made pancakes for breakfast. Just something I whipped up quickly. But it felt oh so good. I had realized that I had not stepped into a kitchen to cook or bake anything in two weeks. Well I did make myself some coffee, but I don’t think that counts.

Ok this may be the last of butterscotch recipes for awhile. I have used up my butterscotch chips, except for a few that I can throw in my mouth whenever I pass by the cabinet they are stored in.

I saw a recipe online for butterscotch brownie bars. So i thought to myself, why not? I could go for a brownie.

I printed off the recipe and made some tweaks. Basically I have to change every recipe because I never quite have all the ingredients or I do not want to use 5 eggs. They cost!

Let me tell you. These brownies made my taste buds pop. They are chewy and full of chocolate and butterscotch flavors. They are not dry but very moist and not cake like even though they are thick.
