Hey — it’s National Dessert Day! No better way to celebrate than with some incredible soft baked Chocolate Toffee Blondies!
Yes, I’ve got a thing for blondies! They are my go-to dessert! As well, I can’t seem to live without chocolate and toffee. Combine them together and you’ll have a dish of these divine squares of softness, oozing with sweet chocolate and dotted with delightfully crunchy toffee!
Even though there are a plethora of pumpkin and spiced receipes out right now — you can really make these babies all year round! And believe me, I do! These blondies are great for any occasion in any season.
If you haven’t noticed, dessert bars in my book are the BEST! For me, these scrumptious treats come together so easy and the outcome is, well heavenly! Throw all your ingredients in one bowl, spread them in a pan and bake. So much easier in my mind than baking cookies or for that matter much easier than making a layer cake!
Don’t get me wrong; I love cookies and cakes too. But since I always seem to be short on time, these Chocolate Toffee Blondies are the way to go! They are the perfect dessert in my mind, great for after dinner with a strong cup of coffee, as a satisfying afternoon snack, and if I must admit, I can even eat these little goodies for breakfast!
Chocolate Toffee Blondies
3 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 bag (16 oz.) milk chocolate chips
1 cup Heath Bar Toffee Bits
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13×9-inch pan with non-stick spray and set aside. Note, for thicker blondies use a smaller pan, such as 11×7-inch.
In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir until combined. Set aside until ready to use.
In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until soft. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then mix in the vanilla.
On low-speed, slowly add the flour until just combined. Remove from stand and fold in the chocolate and toffee bits.
Spread batter in prepared pan and smooth top with a spatula. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top has turned golden brown and the blondies are set. Do not over bake.
Take a bite into these divine Chocolate Toffee Blondies and celebrate National Dessert Day with me!
