Chocolate Toffee Blondies

What are blondies?

Blondies are dessert bars flavored with brown sugar and butter. These easy bars come together in about 10 minutes and are the perfect canvas for any number of mix-ins, from chocolate chips and toffee bits to white chocolate chunks, peanut butter cups, chopped nuts, and more.

How to Brown Butter

Brown butter adds rich flavor to these blondies. To make brown butter, cook butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. As the butter melts, it will start to foam. Continue cooking until the foam clears and the color changes from golden to deep brown, with a nutty aroma – this takes about 5 to 6 minutes. Alternatively, you can make these blondies with melted butter.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • flaky salt, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Cook butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it foams, turns clear, and then turns a deep brown, about 6 minutes. Pour brown butter into a medium bowl and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Add brown sugar to bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk in egg, vanilla, and salt until combined. Fold in flour just until incorporated, then fold in toffee bits and chocolate chips. Scrape batter into prepared pan and use a piece of parchment paper coated with nonstick spray to press batter evenly into pan; tap pan sharply to remove air bubbles.
  3. Bake for 26 to 30 minutes, until golden and set in the middle, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Sprinkle with flaky salt and cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Just before cutting, chill in the freezer for 10 minutes. Carefully lift parchment to remove bars from pan and place on a cutting board; cut into squares with a sharp knife.

  1. These look so moist and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Sometimes I miss those study sessions at coffee shops! I think I could be a “professional student” and be very happy!

  2. Made these last night and they were so good I made another batch this morning. Second time I added more toffee because the first time it didn’t stand out enough compared to the chocolate chips. You didn’t even have to add the part about storing for up to 3 days, I can’t imagine these things ever lasting for 3 days! Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing!

  3. Sounds so yummy!! Just curious, what type of toffee bits do you use? I want to make this, but not sure which to use. Do you chop up toffee or use prepackaged bits? Thanks!

  4. They still sell something similar to these (but with oats added) in Canadian Starbucks – they are my favorite! I’m glad to have a recipe.

    1. Hi Kristie, brown butter should work fine! Once you brown the butter, chill it in the freezer until solid (about 1 hour), and then proceed. Hope that helps! 🙂

      1. I made these using white chocolate chips and browned butter– they were amazing! They were an instant fan favorite 🙂 Thanks for the recipe and the advice!

        1. So glad you liked the blondies, thanks for letting me know! 🙂 White chocolate chips with brown butter sounds fabulous!

  5. These are amazing! I made peanut butter cookies and coconut lime shortbread cookies and these…..no one talked about anything but the blondies! Delicious and they come out of the pan easily. A winning recipe to add to the collection.
