Reviews for Blond Butterscotch Brownies
"This came out so strange with a very unexpected taste. Very dense and like a cookie, not at all like a brownie. Although I made no errors while baking, the edge and top was almost burnt while the middle was underdone. I am not sure what went wrong here, but I know I will not be making this again. Very disappointing."
"One of my favorites"
"I made these for a family party & everyone loved them! I used 3/4 cup pre-crushed Heath bits, and substituted semisweet chocolate morsels for the chunks (because that's what I had on hand). They baked 18 minutes and were done. Excellent recipe -- a keeper!"
"I may have cooked them too long as the edges were a bit crunchy.. upgraded this to 5 stars, as I think they actually got better the next day!... Delicious!"
"I love blond brownies and these sound so good! We are not Heath bar fans is there another candy bar to substitute? Would it be too much chocolate to use a Hershey bar?"
"My hubby loved 'em!"
"Mixture was so dry it wouldn't even clump together. So strange. I've baked for sixty years so it isn't like I don't know what I'm doing. I had to add at least 1/4 cup of milk to even get it to stay together then butter my fingers to press it into the pan. I checked the recipe a half dozen times and am sure all my ingredients were correct. The flavor was great (when I licked my fingers) but I would definitely add liquid to my mix. Can't understand why no one else seemed to have this problem. ???"
"My family loves these blondies. I this will be the third weekend in a row I have made them (twice last weekend). Sometime I substitute the white chocolate chips if I don't have the Heath Bars."
"Everyone loved these bars!! Awesome heated with vanilla ice cream! Taste like a restaurant dessert! I used 3/4 C. choc. chunks (1/2 pkge.) and 1/2 (pkge) Heath Toffee Bits. Plenty and I had enough left to make another batch, which I did."
"easy & delicious ....who could ask for more...just added nuts to the batter ...used pecans...excellent"
"these are delicious!!!! A new favorite recipe!"
"These were so good, and very rich. YUM! I kind of thought I was doing it wrong because the batter was REALLY REALLY THICK, but they turned out great! Mine baked in 22 minutes."
"Nice to have a different brownie recipe and these were delicious!"
"Brought to a graduation party and people raved about them. :)"
