What happens when you buy a can of sweetened condensed milk on a whim without a plan? Pinterest happens. Then things get crazyyyy …
Everyone knows Halloween is the time for gluttony. You’re literally not doing it right if you don’t have at least 5 different types of candy in the course of the evening. And for some reason, Halloween candy just tastes better. Seriously, is it just my imagination that the pumpkin-shaped Reese’s taste better than the regular ones?
These blondies aren’t exactly candy (feel free to throw some in though!) … but they’re as sweet and indulgent as a confectionary. The blondie itself is all sugar and butter, so obviously it’s awesome. The sweetened condensed milk on top gets all bubbly, caramelized and delicious.
These are rich and perfect for a group … don’t make when you have no one to share with, or bad things might happen.
On second thought, go ahead and make them when you’re alone. Just get to the gym on Monday.
Gooey Blondies with Chocolate Chips
Recipe from Bakerita
- 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks butter), melted
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-by-13-inch pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
In a large bowl combine the melted butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk to combine, then add in the flour and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing lightly with a spatula or offset knife.
Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top of the batter.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The edges will be browned and slightly pulling away from sides of pan. The sweetened condensed milk should be bubbling and turning light brown. Allow bars to cool for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares. Refrigerating the bars help.
