Butterscotch Blondies Studded with Choco Chips

Butterscotch Blondies studded with chocolate chips featuring Butterscotch Sauce

I mean, I never knew there was something better than brownies. The best part is that these are easier to prepare than brownies., coz there is no beating of eggs involved nor any specialised kitchen machinery required.

My mom loves butterscotch, and that's how I got my inspiration to prepare these blondies. She always frowns whenever I make a brownies. The other day I happened to prepare some butterscotch sauce and I was craving for some warm and cold combination, then it dawned on me all that I wanted to make was some warm blondies that will go along with some ice cream and a drizzle of butterscotch sauce. And to balance the flavors I added a pinch of salt. Aaah blisss!

Just like brownies are made of chocolate and are called brownies for a reason, blondies are more of a hue of blond and yellow as there is no chocolate in them and it's more of the flavor that comes from the butter and dark brown sugar. I have used browned my butter to bring out the butterscotch flavors. This process has to be done carefully. Browning butter has a science behind it, Butter when boiled brings out the moisture in it, and this is why the butter bubbles when boiled, causing the solid particles in the butter to brown, so in a fraction of seconds, the brown butter can turn into burnt butter. So once the butter has browned lightly, immediately transfer to a heat proof bowl. It is recommended to make the brown butter in a light colored pan, so that it's easier to identify when the butter browns. 

My blondies look a bit darker than usual as my dark brown sugar gave the effect and for added drama I dropped in some choco chips.. Ohh boyyy! The gooey butterscotch blondies along with the melted choco chips is soooo good! So happy with the results.. Can't wait to share with you guys!

And please be careful with the temperatures and bake time, you don't want a greasy and hard blondie. When you bake for longer your results might not be the best. When the blondie is baked in the middle just about done, not fully baked, stop baking. This took my oven around 30 minutes, every oven temperature varies, sometimes you might require less or more. Baking time.

Without further a do let's get started.

Ingredients :


  • 100 gms unsalted butter, browned (check notes) **
  • 1 cup/ 200.gms dark brown sugar 
  • 1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence 
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup patent flour 
  • 2-3 tbsp semi sweet chocolate chips

Butterscotch sauce :

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Whipping cream / heavy cream 
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence


  1. To prepare your butterscotch sauce, in a sauce pan, swirl your butter, before it completely melts and add in your dark brown sugar and Whipping cream. 
  2. Using a rubber whisk, combine well and allow to simmer for 4 minutes stirring occasionally. *

  3. To bake the blondies, preheat the oven to 180°C and line your 8*8 inch baking dish with Parchment paper.
  4. In a bowl, add your dark brown sugar, eggs and combine using a whisk.
  5. Next add a pinch of salt and vanilla essence.
  6. Now add your flour in and fold well using a spatula.
  7. Add in your choco chips and transfer the batter to your lined baking dish and spread uniformly. 

  8. Finally sprinkle some choco chips and bake for around 25 to 30 mins depending upon your oven temperature until still Goey and just about done.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Serve large square pieces with a dollop of ice cream and the prepared home made butter scotch sauce.

Notes :

*Do not simmer the butterscotch sauce for too long, as the sauce would then not be pourable.
** If you use salted butter, omit the addition of salt.
*Browning of butter is done by cooking the butter on medium low and storing continously in a light colored sauce pan. Within a fraction of seconds the brown butter may turn to burnt butter. Once the butter develops a nice aroma and the color has changed, immediately transfer the brown butter to a heat proof bowl and allow to cool.
