Blondie batter:

  • 1 ½ sticks salted butter
  • 1 ½ cup light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Optional add ins:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • Add the butter and brown sugar to a medium saucepan and melt over medium heat.
  • Once the butter is just melted, stir until the brown sugar and butter are combined and smooth.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • If the butter and brown sugar separate then give it a stir before proceeding to the next step.
  • When the mixture has cooled, add the eggs and vanilla then stir well. NOTE: If the mixture is not allowed to cool enough then the eggs could cook and thicken before they fully incorporate into the batter.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well.
  • Add the almonds, and toffee bits.
  • Give a quick stir.
  • Pour the batter into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish and spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the blondie batter.
  • Bake for 20-23 minutes or until the top is just set and the middle is still a little gooey.
  • Set aside to cool at least 10 minutes.
  • While the blondie is baking in the oven, make the caramel sauce per directions.
