Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 9 mins

I could only find similar recipes using cake mix, so I thought I'd share a more "homemade" version of these yumm-o cookies. These are very chocolatey...just the way I like 'em. I guess you could also use chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or anything else instead of the butterscotch, but this is how we likes 'em done.

OH..... MY..... GOODNESS.
Having gotten tired of the traditional chocolate chip cookie, I started looking and came across this one. I am SO glad I did!! I divided the dough in half and used white chocolate chips in one half, butterscotch in the other, at 5000 feet elevation I baked them EXACTLY 10 minutes and they're absolutely PERFECT. Now all I can think about is how this dough would be with mint chips... peanut butter chips, triple chocolate (white, light & dark) chips, and even those Andes Peppermint Crunch ones.... Thank you SO much for this recipe!

I used your WONDERFUL recipe to make Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies (because I didn't have butterscotch chips on had) and they were delicious! I will come back and give a rating when I buy butterscotch chips, as I believe they will be magnificent then. Thanks for a yummy snack!

Tasty cookies, perfect for lunchboxes. I used salted butter, and next time would use only 1/2 t salt. Thanks for sharing the no-cake-mix recipe!
