Butterscotch Brownie Bars

Cooking is something I’ve grown to really love, but baking is something I’ve always adored.

I wonder if my love for baking stems from my love for sweets?

Today I baked a totally new treat!

Last week I was loving the combination of butterscotch chips with roasted peanuts and enjoyed it as an afternoon snack throughout the week.

Butterscotch + Peanut Butter

Toady I figured I could take this tasty creation to a new level by combining the two in a brownie-like bar.

I started by melting butterscotch chips and butter in a small saucepan.

I stirred the warm mixture into a bowl with sugar, brown sugar, an egg and vanilla extract. After adding flour, a pinch of salt and peanuts, the batter was ready for bakin’.


After about 25 minutes, the butterscotch brownies were done.
