It's been a long time since I made my last blondies..so it's just the right time to find this one and in time to make it for the kids on a fun Friday!
The original recipe calls for a whole cup of sugar plus a half cup of sweetened condensed milk which is far too sweet to my own preference..so I typically cut off some sugar and decided to omit condensed milk and even so, I thought that my blondies were still sweet but nicely bearable especially when I saw the kids enjoy eating it..:)
The recipe ( adapted from here.)
1/2 c. butter
1 c. butterscotch chips
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c. chopped macadamia nut
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 pan with foil and lightly grease with butter.
Place butter and butterscotch chips in a medium sized microwavable bowl and microwave for 45 seconds and use a rubber spatula to mush it up. Microwave another 30 seconds and then mush it together till smooth. Leave to cool slightly. Add the sugar ,then egg and vanilla into the butterscotch mixture. Mix until combined.
In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt and then incorporate it into the brownie mixture until fully incorporated. Carefully stir in the chopped macadamias and the chips.
Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the center becomes firm and not jiggly.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing.
Makes 12 bars.
