Toffee Blondies

Yields:  16 Blondies

Total Time:  45 min

Prep Time:  15 min

Cook Time:  30 min

 

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 8 oz. light brown sugar (approximately 1 cup, packed)
  • 4 oz. eggs (2 large eggs), room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4.5 oz. all-purpose flour (approximately 1 cup)
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 5 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (approximately ¾ cup)
  • 4.5 oz. toffee bits (approximately ¾ cup), divided

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare an 8×8 inch square pan:  Lightly grease the bottom with nonstick spray or softened butter or line the bottom with parchment paper (leaving extra over the edge for easy removal).
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in the brown sugar until smooth.
  4. Let cool slightly, then lightly whisk in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  5. Add the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder), chocolate chips, and 3 oz. toffee bits.
  6. Stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  7. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle on the remaining toffee bits.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean.
  9. Once done, place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. If desired, cut into squares.  Store the blondies tightly sealed at room temperature for one week.

Blondies are really just butterscotch brownies.  The cocoa powder gets removed and the granulated sugar gets replaced with brown sugar.

These are really easy and quick to whip together.  The other bonus about this recipe?  ONE PAN TO CLEAN.  😀

The ingredient list for today’s bake includes:  all-purpose flour, eggs, baking powder, kosher salt, butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla extract, brown sugar, and toffee bits.

Pour this into a prepared 8 x 8 inch square pan – this time I just sprayed the bottom with nonstick cooking spray.  You can also line the pan with parchment paper.

Sprinkle on some more toffee bits.

And place in the oven for about 30 minutes.

Once the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean, it’s ready!  Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.  Patience is key, my friends.

Other serving suggestions include freshly whipped cream or piles of ice cream.  Or just eating these alone by the handful.  😉

Hope you enjoy this delicious dessert!
