Butterscotch Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I started out with good intentions of making biscuits and somehow, along the way, I made Butterscotch Cookies!  They were great as they were but I know my boys and they are not fond of butterscotch.  However, I can put dark chocolate chips in anything and they will gobble it up.  I think I’ll try them in cornbread just to see if my theory is true .  I'll let you know.  ;)   Eat these as they are or add oats, nuts, dried fruit, cinnamon sugar and/or dark chocolate.  Just make them and get raves about making the best cookies ever!  One of my twins told me,  "Hey Mom, they didn't even need milk!"  My oldest said to me, “When I have children, I’ll bring them over at Christmas to eat the best Grandma cookies!”  ~heart warm and subtle smiles~  That’s why I write Recipes For My Boys, so they will have their favorites … forever.

Peanutty Dark Chocolate Magic Bars

These are so rich!  You only need a bite...yet, you keep going back for more!  Layer the toppings or mix them all together.  However you top it, it is intensely full of deep, sweet flavors!

Haystack Squares

My precious Mama would make these every holiday season.  There would be an endless supply of this wonderful candy.  Lines of them on wax paper the length of the table with pieces missing here and there.  ~smile~  I made these today but wanted to make them different.  I made them in squares so they package and handle easier.  Dark chocolate was a bonus that I never had in these growing up but think I will keep for my boys.  Enjoy!

Haystack Squares

1 bag butterscotch chips
1 cup salted peanuts, I used party peanuts with sea salt
2 cups chow mein noodles, broken in pieces
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Spray brownie bite pan or line a 13 x 9 pan with parchment paper.  Melt butterscotch according to directions.  Add peanuts and chow mein noodles. Stir to mix thoroughly.  Stir in dark chocolate chips.  Press into cavities of brownie bite pan or baking pan.  Put in refrigerator to set.  Un-mold or left parchment paper from pan and cut into squares, rectangles or shapes *haven't tried this but it should work*   Enjoy! 

NOTE:  The candy mixture got hard so I put the filed silicone brownie bite pan in the microwave 10 to 15 seconds at the time until candy was just melted, about 45 seconds total.  Be careful you don't heat too much.  The next time I make these, I will do the same and may actually skip melting the butterscotch first and just mix everything together, add to the pan and melt either in the microwave or oven.

I shared this on this amazing party!

White Chocolate Butterscotch Blonde Brownies

My boys were looking through their closet this afternoon and found an unopened Muppets DVD.  You would have thought it was Christmas the way they carried on.  They had to watch it and needed popcorn!  I started the movie, made the popcorn and thought about making brownies.  Knowing popcorn wouldn't last very long I looked on the internet.

I found out tomorrow is National Blonde Brownie Day. I have never made Blonde Brownies *Blondies*  before.  There, I said it.  I  know, it is hard to believe but true.  I have been thinking about making them for some time now but never did for some reason or another. Well, that did it!   I'm making them for my boys.  There were several recipes I looked at and used a little of this one and more of that one.  Added this and deleted that. You get the idea.   I ended up using butterscotch and white chocolate chips in them.  By the way, I found out two of my boys do not like butterscotch!
