Seeing that I had a bag of Heath toffee bits and thought they would be great in my blondie recipe.
Tips For Making Toffee Blondies
One of my favorite things to do is bake, I really enjoy simple and easy recipes. This recipe is just that plus it only uses a few ingredients.
Butter ~ One of the first tips I recommend is starting with room-temperature butter. Room temperature butter mixes into recipes much easier.
Normally if I know I will be baking I like to pull the butter out ahead of time. However, sometimes I forget to do this. So one trick that I use and have also seen my teenage daughter use is.
While the oven is heating up place the butter on the stovetop towards the back where it gets heat from the oven. This helps to soften the butter up quickly without melting it.
You may be thinking why not melt the butter? I find that melting butter for baking recipes makes the butter lose more runny like.
Take making cookies. Using melted butter will result in a more flatter cookie. Versus a cookie that been has been made with softened butter will tend to hold a cookie shape better.
Brown Sugar ~When you measure brown sugar out you will want to make sure it is firmly packed. Packing the brown sugar will give you a more consistent measure of the sugar.
Flour ~ Sifting the flour will also add a little air into the flour making you're baked goods fluffier. Sifting also helps to mix the flour into the batter as well.
Eggs ~ Beat the eggs slightly in a small bowl before adding them into your baking recipe. Will help the eggs to mix into the batter better.

Combining The Ingredients
The first ingredients I start to combine are the butter and brown sugar. Creaming the butter and brown sugar together will help make the brownies fluffier.
I then will add the slightly beaten eggs and vanilla extract in. You can use a hand mixer or a stand mixer whichever you prefer to do your mixing with.
While I'm sifting the flour I will also sift the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Sifting these ingredients will also help to make sure there are no lumps from these ingredients.
Once the butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract are mixed together it's time to slowly add in the sifted ingredients. What I like to do is add a little bit of the flour into the butter mixture at a time.
This way I don't get a flour bath nor will there be to much flour to mix in at once. And you can make sure that all the flour gets mixed in well.
Baking The Heath Toffee Blondies
With the batter, all mixed together, add the Heath toffee bits into the batter. I do recommend stirring these in by hand that way the toffee doesn't get broken up more.
I like to use a rubber spatula that way I can scrap the sides of the bowl well.
After you have the toffee bits mixed in spread the batter out into a 9x13 baking dish that you have sprayed with cooking spray. The cooking spray is so that the brownies don't stick to the baking dish.
The batter will be a little sticky so it will take a little work to get the batter spread out evenly.
Place the baking dish into a preheated 350℉ oven for 30 minutes or until done. Poke a toothpick in the center of the brownies, if the toothpick comes out clean they are done.
As soon as the brownies are completely baked sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the toffee blondies. With the oven off place the baking dish back into the oven for 5 minutes.
This will help melt the chocolate to make it easier to spread. I used an offset metal spatula to spread the melted chocolate chips evenly over the blondies.
Once the melted chocolate is spread evenly sprinkle the top of the brownies with the Heath toffee bits. Since I used a glass baking dish I let my brownies cool slightly out on the countertop.
Once I felt the baking dish was cool enough I place the dish into the refrigerator to set the chocolate up. This took about 30 minutes to get the chocolate to set up in the fridge.
Cut and serve these fabulous toffee blondies. These make for a great snack any time of the day.
I do recommend that they get covered with saran wrap or they will dry out.
