White Chocolate Brownies with Macadamia Nuts
Grease an 8” square pan and set aside. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add half of the white chocolate and remove from heat, no more stirring. (You really have to be careful that you don’t let this mixture burn)
Beat eggs and medium speed of an electric mixture until think and light, slowly add sugar beating well. Combine remaining dry ingredients, mixing just till blended.
Stir in melted white chocolate mixture and vanilla, don’t over beat it. Fold in the rest of the white chocolate. Spoon batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with macadamia nuts.
Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Don’t over bake. I know I’ve given several warnings in this recipe about not over doing, trust me it’s important.
While the brownies are cooling mix the softened cream cheese with the 3 TBS of powdered sugar on low speed of your stand mixer, for 2 minutes or until well blended and set aside. After brownies have cooled, cut them into small squares (approx 1-1 ½“). Place a layer of them in a glass bowl or trifle dish.
On top of the brownies spread a layer of sweetened cream cheese and sprinkle with a couple of tablespoons of butterscotch chips.
Repeat with a layer of brownies and then with a coating of the white chocolate pudding, add more butterscotch chips. Continue with brownies, cream cheese, and butterscotch chips. Then brownies, pudding and butterscotch chips.
Drizzle top with butterscotch sauce. The next step is the most difficult. Let it sit for at least an hour in the refrigerator before serving.
