Double Chocolate Buterscotch Cookies

If you love chocolate and love butterscotch you have to try these cookies. WARNING it’s hard to eat just one of these cookies.

The boyfriend loves butterscotch and normally he requests butterscotch brownies.  This time he really wasn’t “feeling” brownies. I guess it was more of a cookie kind of day.

So I made these soft & gooey bites of pure chocolatey, butterscotchy (is that a word) goodness. They Have a crispy edge with a super soft inside.

Substituting white chocolate chips, mint chips, dark chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips for the butte scotch chips would be a fabulous variation for these cookies.

Here’s the recipe:
