I like to think of blondies as a type of brownie that doesn’t contain any cocoa, which means I like them a little on the gooey side. I also like to try to get my kids to eat fruits as often as I can, which means I’ll sneak it into any baked good I can. These bars have been a success with my kids and with my enormous sweet tooth so that’s a win in my books. My recipe for Apple Butterscotch Blondies is easy to make and taste delicious.

Blondie Bars:

These are sometimes called butterscotch bars, but typically they are known as blondies. There are plenty of options for these bars, just like there are for brownies. You can add chopped nuts, chocolate chips, raisins or other dried fruit, or, like this recipe, butterscotch chips. I like having recipes that I can tweak and change to suit my moods.

The recipe is rather simple so that there aren’t many things to point out about preparing, or baking these blondies. Since you are going to be mixing the entire recipe in a saucepan or pot make sure that you are using a medium to large pot to boil your butter and sugar. You will want to wait to add the butterscotch chips until the very end, so they don’t melt into the warm batter. The eggs are also added near the end so that they don’t partially cook when added to the batter.

I am excited to share my recipe for Apple Butterscotch Blondies because they are the perfect tasty treat. My kids gobble these bars up and I can’t blame them. I hope you enjoy making and eating these as much as I do. Good Luck and Happy Baking.
