I love chocolate brownies. In fact I love anything with chocolate in it, but brownies with their gooey centre really are something else. This recipe puts a twist on the traditional brownie recipe by using butterscotch chips instead of chocolate to make blondies. A perfect, treat for the sweet toothed among us…
Sometimes I just crave a treat that is sweet and simple. Something that doesn’t need decorating and something I don’t feel compelled to make look super cute. So this afternoon when I wanted to sink my teeth into something sugary while I watched Netflix, I went to the pantry to see what I could whip up in a hurry. I’m low on supplies right now but I did have some an opened bag of butterscotch chips and one single egg left, so I decided to make these decadent little blondies.
These are great because you only need a handful of everyday ingredients.
And they are super quick to whisk together.
Bake the blondies and when cool, cut into small squares. These are pretty sweet, so you really don’t need a big bar.

Here is the metric version of the recipe:
Makes 16-24 blondies
- 150g plain flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 115g unsalted butter, melted
- 220g dark brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 100g mini butterscotch pieces (or white chocolate chips)
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (350F) and lightly grease the bottom of an 20cm square baking tray with oil or butter. You could also line with baking paper to make lifting the blondies out of the tray easier.
- In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter sugar until completely combined.
- Add the vanilla and the egg and whisk until incorporated.
- Fold in the flour mixture until well combined and then stir in butterscotch pieces.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until crispy on top but still just gooey in the centre.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool before cutting into small squares.
Enjoy with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
