Double Chocolate & Toffee Blondie Bars

Dessert Recipe- Double Chocolate & Toffee Blondies. Recipe posted @ thetastyfork.com

I have something I must admit. Until a week ago, I’d never eaten a blondie before.

Sure they have a cute name… but if I’m going to put the time and effort of making a dessert from scratch, there are plenty of other things I’d love to eat. Brownies. Cookies. Pie. I didn’t want to waste time (or the calories) making something I wasn’t sure I’d be completely obsessed with and telling everyone about.

Well, I tried a blondie at a Chicago Blackhawks game…. and I fell in love at first bite. Let me be clear, this blondie had a ton of competition. I was sitting in the luxury box section at the United Center and we had every kind of dessert available to us. Cheesecake. Turtle Brownies. Ice cream sundaes.

Keep in mind I already stuffed myself at dinner because I had to try a little of everything. I asked the Chef what was his favorite dessert of them all… He replied, “The Blondie…but the Turtle Brownie is a close second.” So of course I tried both… Ok fine, I took 2 of both and a lemon bar.

I tried the blondie first, just to get it out of the way. I took a bite and was totally blown away! It tasted like a cookie and then it had toffee bits and white chocolate. I ate both blondies in like 10 seconds. I didn’t even want the brownies or lemon bar. All I kept thinking was, “GIVE ME MORE BLONDIES!!”

Needless to say, a week has gone by and I’m still thinking about those darn blondies. I emailed one of my favorite sweet queens, Sally from Sally’s Baking Addiction, asking if she has a go to blondie recipe I could try and play with. Sally gave me her signature recipe , which I doubled since I was looking for a dense cookie bar.

I added my favorite elements from the Blackhawks blondie to Sally’s blondie recipe. Semi sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and Heath (toffee) pieces.  I tried the batter while mixing and I could’ve eaten all of it right then and there… but I put my inner glutton aside and got the bars into the oven. I tried my best to wait the whole hour to let them rest like Sally recommends. I did everything I could to kill 60 minutes. I put my laundry away, painted my toe nails, watched the Vanderpump Rules Reunion.

You guys, I know I haven’t tried my fair share of blondies, but these Double Chocolate & Toffee Blondies are beyond amazing. I got toffee chunks in every bite along with both kinds of chocolate. Does it get any better than that??!!

If you love blondies, you must try this recipe! If you’re like the old me and don’t think blondies are that big of a deal, eat your words and try this blondie! I love how it has all of the elements of a cookie but it’s rich& chewy like a brownie. Enjoy!!

Double Chocolate & Toffee Blondie Bars

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
  • 2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Heath toffee bits

Instructions

  1. 1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 2. In a medium sauce pan, add butter to make brown butter. I find the butter melts pretty easily if the butter is cut into cubes. Stir and let the butter come to a boil. Continue to stir until you see brown bits starting to form on the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and pour butter into a large bowl. Add brown sugar and stir. Set aside and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  3. 3. Stir in eggs and vanilla to the bowl. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined. Add both kinds of chocolate chips and toffee bits. You can use you hands to evenly distribute chips and toffee into the batter.
  4. 4. In a medium sized baking dish (I used 10x7x2), coat with cooking spray or parchment paper. Press batter into the baking dish evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the the top is nicely browned. Take out of the oven and let the bars cool for 60 minutes. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.

      Thanks, Rosie!! It was my first time making blondies. I won’t be waiting long to bake them again!

  15. Heather @ Sugar Dish Me says

    Well. You certainly sold me on this one! I really like blondies. I made one batch back around Thanksgiving that was maple and walnut and had this sauce… holy wow. Anyway– my little guy was asking me for a “vanilla brownie” the other day. I saw some at Averie Cooks earlier that I thought I might try, but you talked these up so much that they’ve moved to the top of the “Vanilla Blondie” list! Thank you!

    • admin says

      Vanilla Brownie is an AWESOME name!! Good thinking from your son :)

  16. sally @ sallys baking addiction says

    HOLY COW!!!! Meghan, you are blowing me away with these. SO happy you used my blondie recipe as the base. These are simply gorgeous and so so moist, soft, sticky, and perfect. Holy smokes, I want one right now.

    • admin says

      Awe, thanks Sally! I’m so thrilled I made you proud! You’re the best!

  17. Bibi @ Bibi's Culinary Journey says

    Meghan, they look delicious! I love Blondies because of their caramel flavor from the brown sugar :)

    • admin says

      Thank you!! I totally agree!

  18. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life says

    I have to admit that blondies are in my top five for desserts…there is something just so satisfying about them! We had the Blackhawks game on here last night…but nothing compares to watching it in person.

    • admin says

      I agree! I’ve been to a handful of Blackhawks games and they’re so much fun! The intro they do is just amazing.

      I know you’ve got some great blondie recipes on Inside Brucrew Life. I’ll need to try a few since now I’m a total fan!
