Today, I’m gushing all about my all time favorite “bar” treat – the blondie! Ooooooh how I love blondies! They’re totally addicting and so simple. The perfect treat! Sometimes we make them once a week… and then eat them all. For reals. Are you a fan(atic) for these sweet little squares, too?
I just made this candy bar speckled batch this morning, but these malted kit kat babies BLEW my mind so much I knew I had to share immediately. They’re incredible! And the chocolate drizzle… (which is also malted!), oh my gawd. Seriously good stuff!
I hope you guys have a safe and fun Halloween planned for tomorrow!? Let me know that you’re getting up to! I’ll be finishing off the tray of these blondies and probably going into the city to check out some of the crazy festivities. We’ll see!
Happy Humpday, my pretties! xo
Malted Kit Kat Blondies with Malted Chocolate Drizzle – Baker by Nature
For the Malted Kit Kat Blondies
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup malted milk powder
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
18 fun-sized kit kat bars, 14 for the pan and 4 roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a 2.2 (11″ x 7 “) quart baking pan with parchment paper and lightly grease. Set aside.
In a large bowl cream melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Fold in malted milk powder. Add eggs, and beat well.
Gently stir in flour and salt, stirring just until the flour begins to disappear.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Lay the kit kats on top of the batter, then add the remaining batter, smoothing the top once again. Sprinkle with chopped kit kat bars.
Place pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is nice and golden and the middle is not wobbling. Cool completely before cutting into squares and drizzling with chocolate malt sauce.
For the Malted Chocolate Drizzle:
2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons malted milk powder
In a medium-sized microwavable bowl, combine the chocolate and oil, and microwave in 20 seconds increments until chocolate is completely melted. Add malted milk powder, and whisk until smooth. Drizzle on top of cooled blondies.
