I made the brownies but added 1/2 cup butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup nuts instead of the 3/4 cup nuts the recipe called for. This really increased the "butterscotchy" flavor of the brownies and made them extra special. People now ask for these well in advance of their birthdays as presents. Read More

These brownies are really good. They rise quite a bit and come out cake-like. I only gave it 4 stars because it really does need a modification to the recipe - butterscotch chips added. I added the chips and the brownies were great. Without them you are relying on the brown sugar alone it's just not enough. Read More

These make a great gift and taste good as well. I double the vanilla and add a pinch of salt to the mix. It really brings the recipe together. Read More

These are very tasty. I baked them for work and for my husband. Everyone thought they were great and very moist. However the main comment is that they don't have a strong "Butterscotch" flavor. But these are delicious anyway. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. 12/23/2000...I made these in jars for Christmas gifts except I did not include the nuts in the jar. I noted the nuts in the card for the recipent to add when mixing. All recipents that have baked them have enjoyed them. Thanks again.. Read More

I tested this recipe before giving it as a Christmas gift and with the addition of the butterscotch chips (1/2 cup) these are really good. Read More

This recipe was amazing. I gave it as a gift before making it that was the only mistake I made with the recipe this is because I found that this recipe is more like a pie than a brownie. If you bake this recipe at 350 for 30-35 minutes in a cake pan it come out gooey on the inside and has the texture of a pecan pie. If I had made it before giving it as a gift I would have changed the cooking temp and time on the directions. This recipe tastes so good warm or refrigerated. I changed the recipe a little by using 3/4 cup butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup nuts. I recommend this recipe to anyone. Read More
