Aunt Jean’s Heath Bar Blondies

five square heath bar blondies on parchment paper

An easy but delicious bar cookie that’s perfect for lunchboxes or stocking the cookie jar.  Brown sugar, melted butter, and Heath bits combine for a sweet, caramel-like treat.

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Line a 9×13 pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang of foil to make little handles.  Spray the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until well combined.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat again.  Combine the flour and salt in a separate bowl, then add to the butter mixture, stirring until just combined.  Add the Heath bar bits and stir gently.
  3. Pour into prepared pan and spread with spatula.  (It will seem shallow.). Bake for 25 minutes.  The blondies will appear underdone but will cool to doneness.  Allow to cool in the pan.  When completely cool, remove using foil handles and cut into squares.

Notes

Variations:  

Add 1 package of white or semi-sweet chocolate chips with the Heath bar bits.

Use crushed, full Heath bars containing chocolate.

Can also be baked in an 8 inch square pan for 35 minutes.
