Fudge Butterscotch Homemade Brownies

Butterscotch is an acquired taste. Not everyone likes it, but when it is paired with fudge it takes the flavor to a whole different level. Another  good thing about these brownies is that they are easy to make and no butter is required. Due to the use of vegetable oil in substitution of the butter, the insides are moist and the outside is just right.  For those of my readers who are vegetarian, this recipe is for you.

Whenever I am craving something chocolate I usually end up making brownies. Sometimes they are plain and other times I add in extra bits of complimentary flavors for something different. I'd rather it be brownies than a candy bar from the store. 

Fudge Butterscotch Homemade Brownies

Yield: 12-16 brownies


3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup Hershey's unsweetened cocoa 
1 cup Nestle butterscotch morsels


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray 8x8 square pan with non-stick baking spray or line with parchment paper.

1. In a medium sized bowl mix flour, salt, and baking soda until combined
2. In another medium sized bowl mix eggs, sugar, and oil until combined.
3. Add water and vanilla extract to the egg mixture.
4. Add Hershey's unsweetened cocoa to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.  
5. Add bowl of dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
6. Gently fold in Nestle butterscotch morsels.
7. Pour brownie batter into square pan and bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
8. Allow brownies to cool for 5 minutes in the pan.
9. Remove brownies from pan and allow to cool completely on cooling rack.

I hope you all are having a great week. What is your favorite dessert involving chocolate?


You can substitute the butterscotch morsels for another type of morsels if you would like.
