Butterscotch Blondies

I was hosting my book club last week and needed an array of finger foods. A mix of sweet and savory is imperative…and nothing too sloppy to drip on our books and Kindles. When I spotted these Butterscotch Blondies with White Chocolate Chips on Danielle’s blog, I knew they’d be a hit.

Butterscotch chips are melted and mixed into the cookie dough batter along with white chocolate chips. Danielle went even further and topped hers with homemade salted caramel sauce…doesn’t that sound incredible???

 Each month, Danielle, creator of the sinfully delicious Hugs & Cookies XOXO  blog, and I whip up a dish from one another’s blogs.  We each create a #TwoSweetiePies post and surprise each other with which recipe we’ve chosen.

I used to shy away with any dessert containing butterscotch chips till trying one of my girlfriend’s oatmeal butterscotch cookies. I quickly got on-line and stocked up on Guittard Butterscotch chips and have discovered that I am indeed a fan.

These chewy butterscotch flavored bars are the perfect foil for the ultra-smooth and creamy white chocolate chips. Even just a small square will satisfy your sweet tooth. But I have a feeling you’ll go back for seconds.

If you love blondies, you’ll love these M & M Blondies, too. Plus check out all my Bar Cookies Recipes.
