Oh, YUM -- ooey, chewy, scrump-deliciousness! I had made this recipe on (or one very similar to it), on several occasions many years ago - and considered it one of my favorites. However, with the change in my cooking style, I had lost track of it....
My whole family was delighted when the recipe resurfaced at an early Christmas dinner we shared at Grandma F.'s (She has no qualms about cooking with butter and eggs). My DH and daughter, Leilani, usually don't care for brownies, but THESE were an exception! People were practically fighting over the few scraps left in the pan! (This recipe copied from allrecipes.com).
The recipe on Allrecipes.com calls for 1 cup of melted butterscotch chips in the dough, with 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips stirred in - which actually makes "blondies" (although they are called "brownies" at allrecipes). Grandma F. made true "brownies", melting 1 cup of melted milk chocolate chips for the dough, then stirring in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Must say, they are wonderful BOTH ways! -LuAnn
