Too sweet

Way too much brown sugar. morsels on top do not melt, tasted dry after 30 minutes as directed.

teen agers favorite brownies

I have been making these butterscotch brownies for the past year. The teens at our parish youth group LOVE them. I am asked to make them numerous times throughout the year. I make them without the nuts. : o )

Sailing Team Favorite

We love these butterscotch brownies! I tried this recipe 2 weeks ago and I am making them again tonight. I made them for my daughter's sailing team and they nearly went weak in the knees when they tasted these delicious, chewy brownies. I think this is a new family favorite and the official brownie of the NSA Sailing Team.

Butterscotch Brownies

I agree with another reviewer they were good but not great. Definately not as chewy as I was expecting. I guess I thought the butterscotch chips would melt more into the brownie and they didn't. I could have done without the nuts they didn't add much flavor but rather a different texture. Perhaps next time I'll try toasting them first. I may do a combination of butterscotch chips and white chocolate that I also read in another review. Overall they were good and my family really liked them it was a nice alternative to the regular chocolate brownies.
