I recently got this book on Amazon. It’s the most FUN book EVER! I’ve tried several things from here but this recipe is soooo good, I changed a bit of it but overall it’s well worth the effort! I do want to say, this is a beautiful book. The photos are amazing and it’s full of … well…”sticky,chewy,messy, gooey” yumalicious-ness!!Here’s the link to Amazon if you want to take a look inside the book! I love it!
I changed up the recipe just a bit and I’m gonna give you my version…take a deep breath and grab a gallon of milk…you’re gonna need it.
Big Bodacious Blondie’s (Adapted from: Sticky,Chewy,Messy, Gooey Cookbook)
***I have made several changes***
*1 cup unsalted butter
*3 Cups packed dark brown sugar
*4 large eggs
*1 tablespoon vanilla
*1 teaspoon salt
*2 cups all-purpose flour
*3/4 teaspoon baking powder
*1 cup pecan halves-toasted
*1 cup almonds, coarsely chopped and toasted
*1 cup walnut halves, toasted
*5 full size (1.4 ounces) toffee candy bar: HEATH!
very coarsely chopped
*1 cup white chocolate chips
*1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
*****to toast nuts: bake on an ungreased cookie sheet in a preheated (350*) oven for about 6-8 minutes. I turned mine half way through******* DON’T SKIP THIS STEP PEEPS!
~Preheat oven (350*) and put an oven rack in the center. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with Pam!
~Melt butter and brown sugar over med. heat. Cook and stir until they are blended and they start to bubble a little . Remove from heat and let this cool…it takes a little while.
~Whisk the eggs, vanilla, and salt in a mixing bowl. Then slowly whisk the cooled butter and sugar into the eggs just until they are combined. Now, whisk in the flour and baking powder. This will form a loose batter. (The batter needs to be cool before stirring in remaining ingredients)
~Stir in the nuts, Heath Bars, and chocolate chips into the cooled batter. Pour the batter into the 9×13 inch pan and smooth the top …
~Bake until the top is shiny and cracked a little and feels firm to the touch. The recipe called for cooking for 30-35 minutes but mine needed longer. (The book says: “When you insert a toothpick into the center it should come out with moist crumbs” I waited for this and the edges were a bit over done. Next time I’ll take it out at about 40 minutes even if the toothpick comes out wet…)
~Let them cool…they are better cool. Then slice and nibble! So rich Peeps…and oh so good! They are chock full of yumilicious goodness!
