On Memorial Day we had a potluck BBQ with friends from church. We had spent the day playing. We went for a hike at the beautiful Silver Falls State Park. By the time we got home I didn’t have much time but I had told my friend I would bring a salad and a dessert. Yeah, I’m a bit of an overachiever.
The salad was no problem as I had made the salad dressing the day before. For once I was planning ahead but I didn’t plan ahead on the dessert. A bar cookie is always a good choice when you are short on time. Mix it up, put it in a pan and bake.
I decided to put a little twist on an old favorite and made White Chocolate and Toffee Blondies.
I usually make Butterscotch Blondies but since there were no butterscotch chips in my pantry but there was a bag of white chocolate chips guess what we ended up with!? I also uncovered a bag of forgotten toffee chips while searching for the white chocolate chips so I decided to add those in too – good decision.
After removing them from the oven allow them to cool and then lift them out of the pan with the foil. If you are in a hurry like I was you can remove them and cut them while they are still warm. In fact, I rather recommend it. These bars are delicious cooled but they are amazing when they are warm and still a little gooey.
I loved the flavor combination of the white chocolate chips and the toffee chips – a really good choice! I cut them up quick and put them on a cake plate and we were out the door. (After I took a few photos of course!) The party guests loved it that they were still warm!
