Meredith's Molten Blondies

This image courtesy of Mark T. Shapiro

A blondie is a brownie flavored with butterscotch instead of chocolate. This variation transforms that idea into a delectable dessert with cake on the top and sauce on the bottom. It is superb over vanilla ice cream. I have my daughter, Meredith, to thank for the idea of enhancing the recipe with chocolate chips, which are a great addition. Butterscotch chips or a combination of butterscotch and chocolate is equally delicious. This can also be served cold, with whipped cream.

This is a novel way of making blondies. I've usually made them the traditional way by baking, but using the crock pot is an interesting idea. I normally don't add chocolate chips to mine, but nuts are almost always a given. I like the idea of serving them warm with some ice cream. I'll have to try this way of making them, along with the idea of adding chocolate chips to the batter.
