Holy cow... where have I been. My Dentist asked if I had been on a vacation. NO.. just at home. Working outside, going to the beach and a very few motorcycle rides. I have been busy making very cool cakes, neat cupcakes and the same old delicious cookies. I am still drinking the same types of green drinks. Creature of habit. Hardly outside the box for me. No new recipes.
I have went to a wedding and catered two. Meet some old friends of my Husbands for the first time. I have went to two graduation parties and one birthday party. Good lord. The cash just keeps flying out the window. My weight loss plan has also flown out the window. Party food is so very bad and taste so very good.
My Husband and I are my wonderful friend Mary's sons wedding.
The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome as ever.
My Friend Mary was just stunning. Her radiating personality was
all over the wedding and reception. It was just a lovely event.
So one day I can across this recipe. Salted caramel scotch blondies. They screamed at me.. MAKE ME!!
The only problem I have with blondies, they have a very short shelf life. Brownies will last a few days, not these. By the end of two days, I think they are done. You cannot over mix them, over bake them or not leave them wrapped well. Hockey season is over, you do not want pucks.
These blondies are very good though. NOT diet friendly, but o so delicious. Melt in your mouth, and commingle with flavors. There are several reasons for a wow factor. Brown Butter. Caramel Chips and Butterscotch Chips and last, Sea Salt. WOW. I made them for a party and they were gone. Everyone loved them. I made these for a 9 x 13 pan. You can cut them in half and make an 8 inch pan. They will taste great either way
Salted Caramel Scotch Blondies
adapted from chelseasmessyapron.com
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup caramel chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 pan with foil. Spray for cooking spray and set aside
Heat your skillet to medium heat. Add butter and watch until melted. The butter will foam, stir regularly, to keep from boiling over. The butter will gradually start to brown. DO NOT let it burn. Or you will be starting over. Yummy brown bits will form, when you smell a nutty flavor, it will be done.
Pour the brown butter into your mixing bowl. Add your brown sugar and mix. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Slowly add your flour, baking soda and sea salt until just incorporated.
Spread about two cups of the mixture into your prepared pan. Sprinkle with the caramel chips. Then sprinkle with the butterscotch chips. Gently spread the REMAINING batter over the chips. The mixture will spread.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Until just slightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Cut and serve
The browned butter batter will be a nice light blondie color
Add your caramel chips and then the butterscotch chips next
Cool and cut into pieces.
The combination of flavors will rock any one's world and melt a sour heart
Soft tidbits of pure heaven.
