Snickers Bar Blondies
Cookie bars are one of my favorite childhood sweets. It was such a thrill to know my Mom was whipping-up a batch of her chocolate chip cookie bars and sheer agony of waiting for them to cool. My boys seem to have the same reaction when they know I'm busy in the kitchen baking something sweet for them, too. These candy bar filled blondies are chewy and filled with chocolate, chewy nougat and peanutty goodness. I usually get the kids to unwrap the candy bars for me, and they don't seem to mind doing it nearly as much as I do. They make for a perfect rainy day baking fun for the whole family.
Helpful Tips for Making Snickers Bar Blondies
- Enlist the kids help with unwrapping the candy bars and get them involved in the prep.
- When chopping the candy bars, think cubes not random chopped candy. This will help the batter to bake more evenly.
- It's important to let the butter-sugar mixture to cool slightly before adding the eggs.
- Use unsalted butter for the batter since the peanuts are salted.
- Test for doneness sticking a toothpick into the batter portion only.
