OMG Butterscotch and Chocolate Chip Blondies – Virtual Cookie Swap

It’s Cookie Swap time!! Except this time you don’t have to make 20 dozen and carry them to someone else’s house. This time you can make them for yourself and eat them all at home!!

Today I’m sharing a recipe that has been one of my favorites for years. We usually make it with chocolate chips, but added butterscotch the last 2 times we (my daughters and I) made it. My 15-year-old asked me if the recipe was from God when she tasted the butterscotch version. I’ll take that as a giant thumbs up because she’s the pickiest one in the family. Hence the name “OMG Blondies”. You’re gonna say that when you take a bite of these. Really, you are.

Warning: they’re kinda rich, so you’ll want a glass of milk or coffee or something nearby to wash them down with. 

I’m teaming up with some of my blogging friends and we’re having a virtual cookie swap. Right now I’m kinda wishing they all lived closer to me so we could get together and have a cookie eating party. All of their recipes are AMAZING! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and visit all of the blogs. You’ll be glad you did! (just click on the names of the blogs listed)

Do you have a great cookie recipe you’d like to share? We’d love for you to come back here on Friday because we’re having a GIANT virtual cookie exchange where you can link up your recipe! I can’t wait!! 

Now for the recipe for my OMG Blondies. 

*This recipe was adapted from the Chocolate Chip Chews recipe found in the “Charleston Cake Lady” cookbook. 


Ingredients needed:

  • 1/2 cup sweet butter, melted
  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup (8 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (8 oz) butterscotch chips
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 13″ x 9″ pan. (I used a glass one)

In a medium bowl, stir the melted butter and brown sugar just until the sugar is evenly moistened. Add the beaten eggs and mix well. Stir in the sifted flour. Fold in the chocolate and butterscotch morsels. Add the vanilla extract.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. Cool in the pan, then cut into squares, about 1 1/2″ square.


Be prepared for no leftovers. 🙂

Honestly, they’re not the prettiest cookies on the planet, but you’ll forget about that once you taste them. Beauty is only skin deep, right? You won’t miss the frosting and sprinkles on these. 

And there is never anything left but crumbs when I take these anywhere.

They’re quick and easy to make. My 15-year-old loves to make them and share with her friends. They love her for it, too!

Now it’s time to visit all of the other yummy recipes. Let me know which ones you make! And don’t forget to come back on Friday and link up your recipes for the biggest virtual cookie swap on the planet!!

  1. I could lick the screen just looking at your cookie bar! Yum! This is the exact kind of cookie that I love to eat!

  2. Oh yeah… I'm licking the screen right along with Paula (because that's not weird at all).
    Thanks for the great recipe Angie… pining this to make over the weekend. Sure hope I can find butterscotch chip here in Australia.
