Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 11x7x2-inch baking pan.

  • Beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended, then beat in the vanilla with the last egg.

  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl; add to the butter mixture and stir until just incorporated into a batter. Fold chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and pecans into the batter; spread into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool brownies in pan for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

I followed the recipe except for using milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. I could not imagine trying to spread the dough into the pan specified so I used an 8x8" square pan. They baked about 40 minutes. I would prefer blond brownies to have no chocolate so next time I'll probably make them without. Thanks. Read More

I doubled the recipe for my family for a party (used a 9 X 13 pan) and left out the nuts. Every one gave it a 5 star rating! It's a keeper. Read More

Love this recipe & it is always a hit. I use all white chocolate chips since that's my husband's favorite and leave out the nuts. Read More

This recipe is really good. I like it the way it is (the original recipe) but the chips/nuts additions can be modified with different flavored chips, Heath bar bits, M&M chips etc... The dough kind of reminds me of chocolate chip cookie dough, only just plop it in the pan and go! Great recipe, and I could see a young cook being able to do these easily! Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Read More

Amazing. I made one change. I dont like butterscotch so I used 2 cups of semi sweet choc chips. I don't think we will ever make regular brownies again!! Family is already asking for another batch. Read More

I made these brownies for an open house. At the time I did not have any pecans so I made them without. They were delicious. I am going to try them with the pecans next time. Either way I bet they are great! Very simple to make. This recipe is a keeper! Read More
