Butterscotch Apple Brownies…. or should they be Bars?

When you read the word Brownies, I think decadent and chocolate. When I saw this recipe for Butterscotch Apple Brownies in Southern Living I figured I would give it a try. I like butterscotch and we had just picked apples.

The recipe is pretty easy no real tips to give you. They are full of apples as you can tell from this recipe. Maybe I cut them too large?

Here is the final result, a very dense and cake like bar. My daughter and I enjoyed them not loved them. My husband and sons tolerated them. I think this is the first dessert in a while that I have made and thrown out.

I kept them fresh in the fridge for several days but then realized if I ate them all that would not be good.

I think Southern Living editors should rename these Apple bars or snack cake. I don’t see anything “brownie” about them. So if you are in the mood for an apple snack cake give these a try. I did like them, I think the boys just had brownie on their minds. Or maybe it was something I did that made them less “brownie” like.
