Despite my allegiance to brown hair and brownies, I have to say, occasionally blondies really do have more fun.
From Eat Live Run
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup toffee bits (I used Heath Bits O' Brickle)
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8x8 pan (this makes for a thing blondie already, so if you use a 9x9 pan be sure to reduce the baking time).
Melt one stick of butter over medium heat in a saucepan until lightly brown in color, stirring constantly. Be careful not to burn the butter.
Add browned butter into the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with 1 cup packed dark brown sugar for about 3 minutes. Add 1 egg and beat until incorporated. Add flour, salt, and vanilla all at once and beat until just combined. By hand, mix in toffee bits and chopped walnuts. Spread batter (it will be thick) into greased pan and bake for 25 minutes.
