Whether you’re into blondes or brunettes, we can all agree on the greatness of a Blondie Bar. Overwhelmingly delicious and incredibly sweet, these sugary bars are best saved for special occasions, like the holidays.
This year, I decided to make my own version of Blondie Bars—called Holiday Blondie Bars—as a little treat for my friends and family. Like any true blonde, they’re comprised of a ton of great stuff, wrapped up into one golden bombshell. (Yes, this is written by a blonde.)
Keep scrolling down for how to make these white chocolate and butterscotch Blondie Bars, frosted and topped with Golden Oreos.
What You Need (for the Bars):
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
What You Need (for the frosting):
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk
And don’t forget the Golden Oreos! A little warning: You will need the entire package of Oreos. In other words, if you snack on them, you won’t have enough to cover all the bars. Trust.
