Butterscotch Brownies

Hello friends!  I am finally back on my game!  WOOHOO!  I hope you are all doing well.  I have been busy in the kitchen, just doing a lot of testing, tweaking and tasting!   I just have been keeping it from you, I guess.  Life got hectic, good and bad.  I am back and ready to roll out some more great food!

Brownies or blondies?  Which do you prefer?  What if there is a chocolate in a blondie or blondie in a brownie?  The struggle is real people, the struggle is real.  I love both and I will admit, I am still on a bit of a "use up".  I way over bought at Christmas and then there was clearance from Valentine's Day and well, the cupboards are jam packed. 

This recipe is a little of this and a little of that.  I started it based on another recipe I have and then 2 tries later, I got it.  I did it, thank the good Lord above because someone has to eat these misadventures and it can no longer be me!

These have something for everyone, chocolate, butterscotch, marshmallows, and toffee!  They are chewy and the perfect brownie/blondie consistency in my opinion.  I don't like hard and crunchy, I don't like raw, these, are chewy and soft, and oh so yummy!  Give them a try!

You will need:
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract or vanilla paste
1 egg
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup toffee bits
1 cup milk chocolate chips (use semi sweet if you choose)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  In a heavy bottom saucepan, melt together butterscotch chips and butter stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and let cool until it is just warm.  Add in flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, vanilla and your egg.  Mix well!  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Stir in marshmallows, toffee bits, and chocolate chips.  Fold just until combined.  Place into a well greased 9x9 baking dish. 

Spread evenly and back 20-23 minutes, the center should still be a WEE BIT jiggly.  It will set as it cools. Don't over bake or you will get dry and hard brownies!

Enjoy these!  I like putting them in the fridge, because I like them cold.  I like all brownies refrigerated.  Freaky fact I guess.
