Toffee Blondies [Week 4 of 12 Weeks of Cookies]

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 4/26/14 – I have updated the printable recipe card. It had a typo, but now it doesn’t!** ย  toffee blondie brownie recipeFor the jar: 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts 1/2 cup Heath Chips 1 quart size mason jar To make the Toffee Blondies: the contents of the jar 1/4 cup melted butter 2 lightly beaten eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla toffee blondie brownie recipeLayer the brown sugar, chocolate chips, flour, baking powder, salt, Heath chips, and pecans.

    Just lovely, Bree! I was planning on making some type of goodie at Christmas for all my neighbors, but I LOVE this idea much more. And it saves me from having to put off cleaning my kitchen for days afterwards. Thank YOU for making my life easier; you are Super Woman! ๐Ÿ™‚ And since I have all the ingredients in my pantry now, I’m going to bake these tonight just because.

    I was just looking at that same magazine this week at Sam’s Club and saw the packaging idea you did. I love it! What a fantastic gift idea. Anyone would love to receive this jar of toffee blondie ingredients. I look forward to your post every week to see what you’ve made and all your creative ideas (which I’m stealing from you)…..: )

    one of my favorite kitchen gadgets is a canning funnel….a wide-mouthed funnel made just for pouring scrumptiousness into canning jars! so no more carefully pouring from a 1/4 cup. how great is that?! thanks for the recipe! blondie lover

    i love the look of this, and had to look up heath chips. We don’t have hersheys things here in Australia. What do you think I could substitute for these toffee chips? Life’s tough down here, I don’t know how i’ve lived this long without heath chips!

    Bree,
    Great job, these look amazing. This is actually a life saver, I had no idea what I was going to make for all the women in my family as well as my boyfriends family and now I know =) so thank you for that. Just one question, what size (oz) are the mason jars you used for this recipe?

  43. bakedbree

    December 4th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    They are 1 quart jars. I am glad that you found something to give. ๐Ÿ™‚

    How long can you store the jar before the ingredients will go bad? Can wait to try these!

  47. bakedbree

    March 18th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    I would say a month or two.

    1 quart

  61. April

    December 7th, 2013 at 9:03 am

    These are awesome! Thank you so much!! I just noticed though, that there’s a typo in the recipe card…there’s no ‘m’ on ‘from’ in the second last line of instructions. I’ve tried to change it but am seemingly tech-challenged. Any chance you could update that if you have a moment? I’m making a few of these for gifts and love the style of your recipe-card. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  62. Sandy

    March 3rd, 2014 at 8:12 pm

    I would like to print the label but it has a misspelled word – from (missing the m). I gave this for gifts last year and just wrote the m in but it would look more professional to have it printed. This recipe is so good, I always have a quart jar on my counter ready for unexpected guests – to make for them or to give them the jar. Thanks for the recipe!!

  63. bakedbree

    March 4th, 2014 at 6:31 pm

    I’ll have to remake it, thanks for the reminder.

    Did you sift the flour before adding it to the jar?

    Nope.

    I purchased mason jars today – quart-size. They don’t look the same as yours. What kind did you use?

  69. bakedbree

    November 10th, 2015 at 10:04 am

    I used quart size mason jars. They come in wide mouth too. Maybe that is why yours look different.

  70. Amy

    December 7th, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    Can the pecans or walnuts be omitted without affecting the results?

  71. bakedbree

    December 12th, 2016 at 10:33 am

    I don’t see why it would. Give it a try.
