Chocolate butterscotch cookies are light and chewy with that distinct brown sugar-butter flavor. These cookies take your standard chocolate chip cookie and kick it up a notch (or two). I use both butterscotch chips and chocolate chips in this recipe. Chocolate butterscotch cookies come out nice and thin and chewy – my favorite way to eat a cookie.
I made these cookies with my kids when their kindness elves had them bake cookies for their cousins. This was their first time tasting butterscotch and they LOVED IT! 🙂 We also made s’mores blossom cookies on that day and hazelnut snowball cookies. It was a lot of fun.
