Butterscotch Bars . . . these bars are thick and chewy and full of crunchy pecans. The maple flavoring adds a wonderful depth of flavor.
Chewy Butterscotch Bars
I needed some treats to take to a neighbor today, and wanted to try something fast and easy. So I whipped up these butterscotch bars. Oh man, are they ever good!
They are moist and chewy and have a great butterscotch-y (is that a word?) flavor. I used pecans in mine and I thought it was perfect. I love using this nut chopper to chop my pecans. I store it in the fridge so I can have chopped nuts ready in seconds. Such a time saver!
It was a good thing it makes a small batch or I might have eaten them until I was sick. They are definitely going into my recipe box of favorites! If you love a chewy blondie with a rich buttery flavor, you have got to give this recipe a try!
How to make chewy butterscotch bars:
Start with melted butter, that’s what makes the bars extra chewy. You will also be using all brown sugar, and that also contributes to the decadent flavor and chewiness of these bars.
Cream the brown sugar, melted butter, and maple flavoring in a mixing bowl. Beat in the eggs. Stir in the dry ingredients and chopped nuts. Pour into a greased 9″ square pan.
Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, then cut into bars.
So simple, so delicious!
