Perfectly baked blondie brownies are… dare I say… even better than regular chocolate brownies. Don’t believe me? Make a batch today and discover all that you’ve been missing out on!
Does anyone else watch the Harry Potter movies and find themselves craving a tall glass of Butterbeer? They make it look so good! Luckily, when I went to London a couple years ago (*cries* I miss traveling) and went to the Harry Potter studios…I was able to try a cup of Butterbeer! It was DELISH! Definitely overly sweet and butterscotch flavored though.
Anyway, I was watching one of the movies the other day and realized… I need to make blondie brownies.
Although they’re obviously blondies, and not a drink, they’re SO reminiscent of butterbeer! The sweetness in this dessert comes from brown sugar, white sugar, a dash of vanilla extract, and most importantly – butterscotch baking chips.
If you’re a butterbeer fan like I am, you’re going to be obsessed with these sweet, easy to make butterscotch blondies!
These blondies are baked to have crispy edges and a soft, chewy middle that you’ll love biting into. Between the sweet butterscotch flavor and perfect texture, there’s no reason not to love these blondie brownies.
Ingredients for blondie brownies
- Butter – Make sure it’s unsalted and at room temperature for easier use.
- Brown sugar – Light brown sugar works best for these light colored blondies.
- Flour – Plain all-purpose flour does the trick.
- Baking powder – This is the key ingredient to creating the delectable cakey texture.
- Vanilla extract – Just a teaspoon and a half gives this dessert the perfect hint of vanilla.
- Butterscotch baking chips – If you really love that butterscotch flavor, don’t be shy! Toss in a few extra chips until you get the desired amount of butterscotch.
What else can I add to these simple blondie brownies?
I love these delicious blondies just the way they are! However, you can add any of the following ingredients to create more texture/flavor.
- Macadamia nuts
- Chopped walnuts
- Milk chocolate chips
- White chocolate chips
- Flaky sea salt (to be sprinkled on top)
- Caramel sauce (to be drizzled on top)
How long will they stay fresh?
In an airtight container at room temperature, these blondie brownies should stay fresh and delicious for up to 3 days. You can also pop them in the fridge, where they’ll stay fresh for up to a week!
Can blondie brownies be frozen?
Oh yes, they definitely can! These blondies are perfect make-ahead desserts.
To store, make sure the blondies are in an airtight container to avoid freezer burn. Also, if you can, keep the blondies uncut. They’ll freeze better and not get dried out as easily if the dessert is still in one whole piece.
In the freezer, the blondies will stay fresh for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to serve them, just allow them to thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
