toffee blondie brownie recipeI know that I am little late with my 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies post, but I promise that these ooey gooey blondies will make up for it.  I have been trying to finish this post all morning.  But that is life right?

Not only does this make an adorable gift, but these Toffee Blondies are insane.  Sweet, crunchy, and full of toffee bits.  The jar looks adorable and is minimal effort.  I even gave you the recipe card so all you have to do is cut it out and tie it to your jar with some bakery twine.

You can do that right?  Of course you can.

*edited to add – I cannot take credit for this idea at all… I got the whole thing, including packaging, from a BHG magazine called Food Gifts. *

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup Heath Chips

2 lightly beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

toffee blondie brownie recipeAs I was cleaning up after my little shoot with the Toffee Blondies, I was making my friend Corey a care package.  I wrapped the blondies in parchment paper and wrapped it like a sandwich and tied it up with some bakery twine.  I attached a little tag that I inked the edges of.  It is so cute that I had to share it with you.
