Baker’s Note: This brownie pays homage to the original drink that inspired the term butterscotch, that is before it was replaced with artificial flavoring during prohibition. The ingredients make these brownies extra special. The addition of real Scotch whisky, a healthy dose of real butter, and the omission of leavening agents, leaves a great textured blondie with balanced sweetness without the harshness of artificially-flavored butterscotch chips.

These truffles may be made with Scotch or Irish whiskey. Roll them in chopped walnuts, confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder, grated chocolate or chocolate sprinkles. Homemade truffles make an ideal gift when presented in a pretty box.
