Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 12 fun-size snickers candies, quartered
  • Directions

    Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated; fold in the snickers.

    Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until golden and a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 25 to 30 minutes. Let the blondie cool completely in the pan. Using the overhangs, transfer the blondie to a cutting board and cut into 16 bars.
