Maple Butterscotch Macadamia Blondies

Butterscotch Macadamia Blondies have a rich butterscotch flavor and just a hint of maple flavor. They’re very thick and chewy, and on a scale of 1-10, they’re a 10.  Over the years I’ve made these with macadamia nuts, walnuts and pecans.  The macadamia nut version is the best, but the versions with other nuts are also excellent.

Here’s a more recent photo.  This version was made with walnuts.

The original version is still on the Whole Foods site.  I’ve made some slight modifications.

    This blondie recipe was the first recipe I have used from your site and from the results, it won’t be the last! They were the BEST blondies I have ever had. I couldn’t stop eating them and that was the bad part! I baked them to send to a soldier in Iraq! I’m pretty sure that he loved them just as much as I did.
