Mr. Goodbar Brown Butter Blondies

Like most of you, I’m sure, the days (and weeks, apparently) after Easter left me with a plethora of candy sitting around my house. ¬†One of my bags of chocolates was a variety of Hershey’s minis; including Milk Chocolate, Krackle’s, Hershey’s Special Dark, and Mr. Goodbars.

Here’s the thing though. I’m not a huge fan of Mr. Goodbars plain. So I set out to bake them into something. The winner? Blondies. I used the same base from Sally’s Baking Addiction that I did for my m&m blondies. I did a few things differently though- specifically, browning the Ray Ban outlet butter, and baking them in an 8×8 pan. These were things I simply didn’t have available to me the last time I made blondies, but boy did they make a difference! I found myself polishing off three or four thick, delicious, buttery and caramel-y blondies. YUM.

Browning the butter was super duper easy. I was wary of it, but now that I’ve done it I want to brown the butter for everything. I finally understand what all the hype is about! All you do is melt the called for amount of butter in a skillet over medium heat, and keep whisking it until you see brown specks appear in the botton of the pan. The butter will be a gorgeous shade of amber, and your kitchen will be filled with a wonderful nutty aroma. Pour the butter into a bowl after this happens so the butter doesn’t burn! The entire process will take around 5-6 minutes.

I topped them off with chopped up mini Mr. Goodbars, but you could use any candy you prefer! The great thing about blondies is that they are a blank slate for ANYTHING you want to mix in. I see myself making many more blondies in the future!
