These are great... but you will enjoy them more with a little help. There is a LOT of sugar here, and that carmelizes when it bakes, so if you overbake these they become hard as a rock when that...

This is definitely not a recipe I would make again. I absolutely love butterscotch, but I did not care for these. I don’t think they have a butterscotch flavor at all. They just taste like su...

I love these! I substituted 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips for the nuts and they're gloriously chewy.

Good, but they dry out fast. 32 bars out of an 8x8 in. pan? You're kidding... I don't serve brownies (or for that matter anything else) in pea-sized portions. The recipe makes 9 normal-sized bro...

I am NOT allowed to make these anymore! I couldn't resist them... I had doubled the batch because I didn't have the right size pan (made them in a 9x13) and I finished them off myself in 3 days...

I'm finding these brownies quite hard to rate. I'm hovering between a 3 and a 4. 4 because I'd just got home from vacation, had very little baking ingredients and wanted a dessert for dinner and...

I baked for the minimum amount of time, and I didn't have any problem with the sugar carmelizing. They turned out nice and chewy. I loathe walnuts, so I replaced it with another 1/4 cup flour....

These are fabulous! I just loved them! This is a recipe that doesn't call for a bunch of ingredients so they can be made in a pinch. I was sure not to overbake them, I only put them in the oven ...

Would give it more stars if I could! A wonderful change from regular brownies....sinful! Definately double the recipe and increase the vanilla to 1T. I used 4 oz of butterscotch chips and 1/2 C...

I took these to a bridal shower at work and I got so many compliments - the words "divine" and "amazing" came up. Easy to make with a minimum of ingredients, they are the perfect treat to bake ...
