Reviews for Maple Butterscotch Brownies
"Delicious and not overly sweet"
"These are scrumptious! I didn't/wouldn't change a thing. Moist, delicious, simple and quick. Just perfect."
"I will probably make this again, but as a cake instead of brownies. It would be really good with caramel frosting, but it is way too cakey for my taste by itself."
"I entered these in our local county fair and took home third place. I was excited, this was the first time I had ever enter the food section. I was the only guy who entered but there were several entries in this category. I think if the judges had tasted them I might have taken home first. I will be making these again!"
"I would also like to know if I could use real maple syrup..."
"Question! Could I substitute real maple syrup? If so, how much?"
"I saw this receipe yesterday and made it last night. I loved it. My husband thought it could use more maple flavoring, so the next time I make it, and I will make it again, I will add a little more maple flavoring."
