    I know, your mouth is watering just hearing that name! Last week I was CRAVING blondies for some reason so I had to come up with a killer recipe for them. The basic recipe is great and you can add so many twists to make them just the way you like ’em. (Believe me, my “blondie to do” list is long!) These are so easy and I actually only used one bowl to make them.

    If you’ve never had a blondie, imagine this: Mr. Brownie and Miss Cookie get married and have a baby. That cute little baby…….it’s BLONDIE!

    Black Walnut Dark Chocolate Toffee Blondies

    To set my blondies apart from other recipies, I include a “secret ingredient” in the batter. Can you figure out what it is?
    Basic Blondies
    1/2 C (1 stick) butter, softened
    1 C light brown sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 C all-purpose flour
    Pinch of salt
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 T powdered sugar

    For the Black Walnut Dark Chocolate Toffee Part
    1 C black walnuts, toasted and chopped 
    1 C toffee bits (I used Heath)
    3/4 C dark chocolate chips
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine butter and brown sugar and mix until well combined. Add in the egg and vanilla; mix to incorporate. Mix in the flour, salt, powdered sugar and baking powder. Stir until everything comes together. Lastly, add in favorite goodies, in this case walnuts, toffee and chocolate chips. Stir. Spray an 8X8 dish with Baker’s Joy. Cook for 30 minutes, or until tooth pick comes out clean. (Or gooey, whatever your heart desires). 

    Ok, so who spotted the secret ingredient? If you said powdered sugar, you’re right! I could not find one recipe with powdered sugar in the batter, crazy! 
    So what additions would you put in there? Candy bits? Peanut butter? Espresso? Dried fruit? 
    Either way, take this basic recipe and give it a twist. Let me know what you come up with!
