Butterscotch Blondies

Maybe I'm a little bias, but in most cases I really think brunettes do have more fun.

When it comes to these delicious little cookie bars however, I'm beginning to think that maybe blondies have more fun??

I say this mostly because the possiblity for additions are absolutely endless! Although brownies are everything you could ever need for a chocolate fix, blondies can be adapted for all sorts of cravings depending on what you add- dried fruit, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, bits of candy- and who knows what else!

I printed this recipe a few months back and finally remembered to grab butterscotch chips the last time we were at the grocery store...
