spelt butterscotch brownies

My most favorite sister-in-law in the whole wide world spent the last week visiting us, and we celebrated her 30th Birthday early (a couple times), and her birthday treat request was for chocolate brownies! They had brought with them a bottle of scotch so making real butterscotch brownies seemed only natural! This recipe was adapted from the Joy of Cooking Butterscotch Blondies. These brownies were pretty over the top! Filled with huge chocolate chunks, pecans, almonds, hemp seeds, and of course butterscotch sauce to die for. Next time I might just serve the butterscotch with spoons, straight up!

In a small pot melt and simmer:

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup dark cane sugar

1/3 cup cane sugar

until bubbly and deep and silky

Add 1 Tbsp Vanilla

and 2 Tbsp scotch

remove from heat and allow to cool and thicken

In a bowl sift together

1 cup spelt flour

1/4 tsp bp

1/8 tsp bs

pinch of fine sea salt

once the butterscotch is cool (if you can stop your self from eating it all) wisk in

2 eggs

1 tbsp  brown rice syrup

Add sauce to flour mix and bring together

Now add your chunks of goodness:

1 did 1 cup of chopped nuts (almond & pecan)

1/2 cup hemp seeds (hearts)

1 cup chunks of dark chocolate

bake in a small 8”prepared square pan  for 20-28 minutes at 350º
