Brown Butter Blondies are ooey gooey caramel blondies using browned butter for a more intense toffee flavour and white chocolate chips.
So these just happened… I made and filmed these bars literally yesterday and I was so excited to share them I cancelled recipe I was originally going to share today and replaced it with these gorgeous brown butter blondies!
The flavour of these blondies is that of toffee or caramel. Slightly butterscotch like with the browned butter. This comes from the use of only brown sugar as well. The flavour of these blondies is just so full and robust that they’re too good not to make and share!
Not too mention they’re ooey gooey and glorious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
The addition of white chocolate chips really balances out the rich caramel flavour by adding the sweet factor.
How To Brown Butter
You will see from the video below how easy it is to brown butter. I also explained how to in my Browned Butter Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and Browned Butter Vanilla Bean Blondies recipes. The only real ‘trick’ is to watch the butter closely and stir continuously once simmering and boiling so avoid burning.
To brown butter, place the butter in a pot on a medium to high heat. Allow it to melt and start to bubble. Continue to let it boil and the bubbles will start turn more translucent and bigger , rather than small and frothy. Be sure to stir the butter as this process is happening and keep an eye on the colour of the butter. We want it a rich amber not black and burnt.
The rest of the recipe is an absolute breeze and takes simple ingredients you have in your pantry so there’s really no excuses not to make these blondies RIGHT. NOW!
