Blondie Bombs

I never make blondies because my goal is typically to consume as much chocolate/square inch as possible in any given dessert. But there’s a first time for everything, and these blondies did not disappoint. My issue with blondies is they typically have too much of a cake or cookie texture, but luckily these came out soft and gooey. 


Mine are filled with chocolate covered peanuts, butterscotch, and chocolate, but I called them Blondie Bombs because you could really put anything your heart desires into them (Also because Chocolate Butterscotch Chocolate-Covered-Peanut Blondies seemed a bit long). And as an important side note: When I make brownies I always dive right into the center, and avoid the edge until the very last minute. But the edges of these were delicious—they caramelized and were more like candy than anything else. 


Of course my cat, Squirty, likes to be in the middle of all things. She was sitting on the window sill watching the action, and this was her face when I brought the blondies over to the table. Like “omg new smell…must investigate.” The girl will literally eat anything but her favorite foods are pizza and Doritos. My other cat won’t entertain the idea of anything except dry cat food – she won’t even eat cat treats. 


Give these a shot and tell me what would go into your favorite Blondie Bomb. P.S. The batter is delicious. I’m surprised I had enough left to fill up the pan! Recipe follows. 

{ 1 stick unsalted butter, melted  ♥  1 egg  ♥  1 cup light brown sugar, packed  ♥  1 tablespoon vanilla extract  ♥  1 cup all-purpose flour  ♥  1 cup chocolate covered peanuts  ♥  1/3 cup butterscotch sauce (pre-baking)  ♥  1/4 cup butterscotch sauce (post bake)  ♥   1/4 cup chocolate fudge (post bake)}

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8 x 8 inch pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
2. Melt the butter.
3. Allow the butter to cool slightly and add the egg brown sugar and vanilla and stir vigorously.
4. Add the flour and stir until just combined. The batter will come together quickly so be careful not to over-mix it. 
5. Fold in the chocolate covered peanuts.
6. Pour into pre-greased pan and drizzle with the butterscotch sauce.

7. Bake at 350 F for 28-32 minutes.
8. Once done drizzle with the butterscotch and fudge sauce.
