I call these “every day brownies”…why? Because I eat one every single day. At night, after my kiddos are asleep, hubs and I sit down and watch some sort of reality TV (whether it be a Real Housewives, The Bachelor, Selling New York…something) and eat a brownie. There are some days when the brownie is a nice ending to a fantastic day and then there are other days, when the brownie is the only thing that went right that day. Regardless, it’s always delicious and so, so easy. You just might have one every day yourself.
It’s “girl math” I know…but I always start with a low-fat brownie mix. It just helps me justify the “brownie a day” thing. However, pick brownie mix that’s your favorite.
We add 1/3 cup of butterscotch chips. So many people have tasted my brownies and said, “I don’t even like butterscotch but I love these”. Honestly, try it with the butterscotch at least once. After that, mix and match with your favorite vice…dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries…the possibilities are endless.
1 box of preferred brownie mix
1/3 cup butterscotch chips (or whatever fancies you)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease an 8 inch square casserole dish with Pam (regardless of what your brownie box says, use an 8″ pan…it just makes them so much better!)
Prepare brownie mix according to instructions on back of box, then fold in 1/3 cup of butterscotch chips.
Bake 37 minutes…I know that’s specific but I’ve made these brownies at least 100 times…37 minutes is always perfect. You want them slightly under-done. Makes 12 brownies (depending on how big you cut them).
Some days, vanilla bean ice cream and butterscotch topping can take an every day brownie and turn it into something extraordinary.
