    I made the brownies, but added 1/2 cup butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup nuts instead of the 3/4 cup nuts the recipe called for. This really increased the "butterscotchy" flavor of the brownies and made them extra special. People now ask for these well in advance of their birthdays as presents.  -  05 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These brownies are really good. They rise quite a bit and come out cake-like. I only gave it 4 stars because it really does need a modification to the recipe - butterscotch chips added. I added the chips and the brownies were great. Without them you are relying on the brown sugar alone, it's just not enough.  -  10 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These make a great gift and taste good as well. I double the vanilla and add a pinch of salt to the mix. It really brings the recipe together.  -  30 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
