Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies

Our interns have come to the end of their year and are moving on. Such a strange experience, at the end of every August we wait with anticipation, and yes some trepidation, for the next class. And at the beginning of the next August we say farewell and good journey. So, of course, I must bring them a treat.

What I intended to make turned out quite differently than what I did make. I had a brownie mix and a bag of butterscotch chips, I thought it would be tasty to have butterscotch chips in the brownie. That’s not what happened. Some of the chips sunk to the bottom of the pan, mixed with the chocolate, and formed a thin luscious crust. The other chips melted into the batter and infused the chocolate with butterscotch. It may have not been what I intended, but it was incredible.

Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies

18.3 oz. fudge brownies mix
1 12 oz. butterscotch chips

Preheat the oven according to the directions on the brownie mix.

Prepare the brownie mix as directed. Mix the butterscotch chips into the batter.

The brownies will take quite a bit longer to bake, as much as 20 minutes over the package directions. You may need to cover the edges with foil so they do not burn. The brownies will be done when a knife inserted in the center does not come out with wet batter. They will however still be really moist as the brownie is very dense and moist.  Enjoy.
