Reviews for Blond Butterscotch Brownies
"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. ???"
