An easy, last minute dessert
In a last-minute decision, we invited some friends over for dinner saturday night. My husband made turkey-feta-spinach burgers, along with some delicious lemon-roasted potatoes and a beet salad. I was in charge of dessert, and I knew I wanted to make something simple and delicious. I'd seen this recipe for blondies in a recent publication of Style at Home, and I thought it would be perfect.
It's really simple to make - one bowl! - and I popped them in the oven during dinner so they would be ready just in time for dessert. Served with a side of vanilla ice-cream, they were a hit. They were also amazing the next morning with my coffee:) I've shared the recipe below.
Blondies - White Chocolate, Butterscotch, and Dark Chocolate
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 bar of coarsely chopped white chocolate, I used Lindt
1/2 cup of butterscotch chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then add the vanilla and salt. Stir in the flour, and fold in about half of the chocolate chips/pieces - reserving the rest to sprinkle on the top. Pour the mixture into a 9x13" baking pan, greased or lined with parchment paper. The batter will be quite thick. Sprinkle the remainder of the chocolate over the cake, and bake for 22-25 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream!
