What Makes Butterscotch Blondies Chewy
If you didn’t know brown sugar when used in desserts helps offer that chewy texture. That is why you will see my recipe for Butterscotch Blondies uses brown sugar, and you get a deeper color with a chewy texture.
How to Freeze Butterscotch Blondies
To freeze your Butterscotch Blondies, just bake as directed and place on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, you can place them in an airtight container, use a sealable freezer bag, or even use a vacuum packing system. Just lay the bars flat, and remove what air you can.
Freeze up to 3 months. I like to pre-slice my bars so when I want one, I just remove one from the freezer and allow to come to room temperature than eat.
What Are Blondies
Blondies are a favorite in our home. You will find that blondies are similar to a brownie, but instead of reaching for a cocoa base, you use a mix of sugars. Brown sugar used in blondies gives it that caramel taste with a chewy texture that is beyond sweet down to the last crumbs.
It might be safe to say; I love blondies a bit more than a classic brownie. Blondies can be made with so many different variances in ingredients, so you really can enjoy all your favorite ingredients in blondie form.
How To Know When Blondies Are Done
You can know when a blondie is done by looking to see if it is beginning to pull away from the edges of the pan. Then grab a toothpick or knife and stick in the center of the blondies and pull it out. If the toothpick comes out clean, your blondies are done. If there is gooey messy on the toothpick, you need to give the blondies more time to bake.
Secret To A Chewy Blondie Recipe
Reach into your pantry and grab that brown sugar. You can use light or dark. The dark will give you a more caramel flavor that offers more richness to your blondie. You also want to make sure you measure your ingredients properly. If you add to much flour, they will become denser and heavy.
Can You Use Margarine In Replace of Butter in Butterscotch Blondie Recipe
You get a lot of flavor from the butter in this recipe; please resist the urge to reach for margarine. You won’t get the same results if you do so.

Whip up a batch or two of these Butterscotch Blondies and thank me later. If you are feeling extra lucky add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a warm brownie and prepare to die and go to heaven.
One tip I always do is reheat my brownie in the microwave for a few seconds, to give it that fresh out of the oven taste and warmth. The ice cream melts a bit, over the top, and boy is it one fantastic dessert.
