These scrumptious bars are the perfect combination of chewy and sweet, with the rich and nostalgic taste of butterscotch chips in every bite.
Blondies are often referred to as the delicious cousin of brownies. While they share a similar texture, blondies swap out the cocoa powder for a brown sugar base, resulting in a lighter, caramel-like flavor. Our butterscotch blondies take this classic dessert to the next level by incorporating butterscotch chips, which provide an extra burst of sweetness and a touch of nostalgia.
Whether you’re looking for a special treat to share with friends and family, or you simply want to indulge in a bit of baking therapy, these butterscotch blondies are guaranteed to satisfy. They’re quick and easy to make, requiring only a handful of ingredients and minimal effort. So, let’s dive into the recipe and start baking!
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and line an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides for easy removal.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and light brown sugar. Stir until smooth and well combined.
Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix until fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Fold in the butterscotch chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs attached.
Remove the blondies from the oven and let them cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Once cooled, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the blondies out of the pan. Slice into squares and enjoy!
