Butterscotch Brownies


  • 1 cup butterscotch morsels plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp butterscotch schnapps optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 inch (or 8x8 inch) baking pan with foil and leave a 2-3 inch overhang on two sides. Spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a double boiler (or metal/heat proof bowl over a pot of boiling water) melt butterscotch chips and butter, stirring frequently.
  • Once melted, remove from heat and stir in brown sugar.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla, and whisk until just incorporated.
  • Stir in flour and baking powder.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with butterscotch morsels.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. (There can be a few crumbs on it.)
  • Let the brownies cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes. Lift brownies out of the pan by the foil overhangs and let them cool on a wire rack.
