Everyone needs The Best Blondie Recipe – and this is the one I love! Filled with pecans, white chocolate chips and toffee pieces, every bite is sweet and rich and buttery.
So – I know I went a little bit crazy last month with the desserts. Normally, I make dessert about once a week at our house, and so we definitely had more than our normal sugar fix last month. But I must have gone too crazy, because looking at my blog, I noticed that I hadn’t even posted a proper dessert recipe in over 2 weeks!!
We all know that’s unacceptable, so I had to post a dessert today.
Dessert, you say? Isn’t everyone all about New Year’s Resolutions and eating healthy right now?
Well, I for one could never give up dessert. So I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t swear off sugar as a New Year’s Resolution. 😉
Looking back at my blog, I also realized that I’ve been hitting the chocolate hard lately. Which I have to say is a bit unexpected as I’m not a choc-o-holic. I like it, but I normally don’t go for the chocolate first.
My middle son? He’s the exact opposite. That boy loves chocolate like crazy. I’m not even exaggerating when I say he could eat chocolate at breakfast, lunch, and dinnertime. And for snacks in-between.
I was craving something sweet, so I whipped up a batch of these easy blondies. I was in the kitchen, cutting the blondies, and Easton came into the kitchen. I whispered him over so all the kids wouldn’t hear and offered him a piece of a blondie. He took it, took one bite, then gave the rest back to me. I asked what was wrong, and he said – “I don’t like it. It’s not chocolate.”
So yeah – it’s a miracle something that is not chocolate actually gets made in this house lately.
It’s a good thing I like blondies. Or maybe it’s not a good thing, because I wanted to eat the whole pan of these blondies myself.
These are exactly what I’m looking for when I’m in the mood for a good blondie. Super buttery, lots of sweetness, and lots of texture is added with the pecans. And I love that they have toffee pieces in them. They melt into the bars, giving them a great caramel-y flavor. And it doesn’t hurt that they only take one bowl to mix.
This really is the Best Blondie Recipe!
