Clementine's Butterscotch Brownies
As my two children grow bigger and bigger, I am finding myself going through larger and larger amounts of snacks. I am diligently trying to cook from scratch as much as I can, both for health and my checkbook. Snacks are a recipe category that I am always trying to find new options that taste good and can be an occasional treat for my family. My local newspaper, the Charleston Sunday Gazette-Mail, had a re-printed recipe for Clementine's Butterscotch Brownies that looked perfect for family snack.
This is a truly easy brownie recipe. The brownies only require two bowls for preparation and the ingredients I already had in my pantry cupboard. I recently bought an oven thermometer to accurately gauge my disco-era oven's temperature more effectively. My brownies for this recipe took 5 minutes less than the suggested 25-30 minutes of baking time. Other than the temp difference I made no other substitutions or adjustments to the original recipe.
These brownies are a great combination of sweet and salty. I find regular chocolate brownies to be overly sweet at times and these ones were just right. I would definitely make these brownies again, they are a quick and easy family friendly snack.
For the recipe you can go to the original link at the Los Angeles Times website: Clementine's Butterscotch Brownies.
