Butterscotch ganache

I tried the Bakerella Butterscotch ganache brownies(which tasted more like a cookie). It was good but I overcooked the brownies which made it a little crunchy. It tasted better the next day. Anyway here is her recipe that I used from Nestle's website
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored MorselsNESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels, divided
  • 1 cup chopped nuts


PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 cup morsels and nuts. Spread into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining morsels.

BAKE for 30 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.
I cooked these in 2 9" round pans for 24 minutes and that was too long. So just watch your time if using something other than a 9x13 pan.
After they were cooled I poured Butterscotch ganache (6 oz. butterscotch morsels, 6 Tbsp heavy whipping cream, 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, In a small saucepan, heat cream and butter until just before the boiling stage. Pour over the butterscotch morsels. Let stand about 20 seconds and stir until smooth) over the brownies. I then stacked them and poured chocolate ganach (substitute half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate chips for butterscotch) on top and layered with butterscotch chips.
