It doesn’t take much perusing here at BoB to see that I have a soft spot for chocolate. It’s my go-to flavor for desserts, and I usually can’t resist tossing some chocolate chips into non-chocolate things I’m baking. But, I do manage to show some restraint sometimes and leave the chocolate in the pantry.
These blondies are an excellent use of all kinds of things that aren’t chocolate. In fact, they’re a good pantry-cleaner. We’re talking butterscotch chips, caramel, cashews, and toffee. Yep, all of that.
In fact, there is so much good stuff in these blondies that you’ll think there’s no way it’s all going to mix together. But, it will. There will seemingly be more add-ins than actual blondie batter, but it works. And, it means that there’s plenty of good stuff in every single bite!
A couple of words of advice. First, not all butterscotch chips are created equally. I used Guittard, which is the brand I usually keep on-hand. Just be sure to get a quality brand that tastes good straight from the bag. Second, make sure your caramel bits are fresh. Otherwise, they may be less delicious and more obstacle when eating these blondies.
Of course, if you can’t tame your chocolate craving, chocolate chips are always an option.
