AMAZING recipe!! Not much of a sweets eater but even I had a second piece. Kids and husband devoured it!

I've never been a fan of chocolate brownies but I like the texture so I thought I would try these. Fantastic! It didn't say what kind of nuts to use so I used pecans. I think walnuts might have been better. I liked the suggestion in the reviews about adding butterscotch chips so I'll try that next time (or white chips) but I didn't have any on hand this time.

Right out of the oven these butterscotch brownies are absolutely delicious. But when they cool they are so hard! They aren't overcooked. What am I doing wrong?

I tried this recipe and the brown sugar did not melt. When I let it cool, the butter and sugar mixture hardened. Do I have to melt the butter & sugar on a low heat or blend it?

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
Yes, in order to melt butter you will need heat. You can do it in a saucepan on the stovetop (best method) or in a microwave safe dish on low in the microwave.

Wonderful!!! My mother has been making this receipe since I was a kid and now I'm making it for my little one! I omit the nuts and include butterscotch chips, about a cup. It's yummy!

I'm long (approximately) do you have to wait before you add the eggs? I waited too long, and the sugar and butter hardened.

A super easy, if somewhat time consuming recipe. The flavor is incredible, soft and carmely. I added chopped pecans. The only thing the recipe didn't include is to MAKE SURE that the butter and brown sugar combination is melted or the brownies will be grainy. The takes quite a long time on med-low heat, but certainly worth it!
