Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter or margarine, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • For the Chocolate Ganache:
  • 1 cup heavy cream, or non dairy cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Topping Options:
  • Candy bars
  • Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Cookie wafers
  • Twizzlers
  • Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • Fresh fruit
  • Dry fruit
  • M and M’s
  • Marshmallows
  • Pretzels
  • Potato chips
Directions
  1. For the Blondie:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar, until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and eggs and mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  5. Evenly spread the batter into an 11 inch tart pan, and smooth out the top.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, and allow to cool completely.
  7. For the Chocolate Ganache:
  8. In a medium saucepan, over a medium flame, heat the cream until it comes to a soft simmer. Turn off the flame, and add in the chocolate, vanilla and salt. Mix until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  9. Once the blondie is completely cool, slowly pour the chocolate ganache on top. You do not need to use all of the ganache, just enough to cover the blondie. Then, top the chocolate with your favorite toppings!
  10. The chocolate ganache will become thicker and less runny the longer it sits.
