Caramel Toffee Blondies

Originally uploaded by IowaSunshine
I feel like I must hide these bars from husband, because I want them for myself. They are so incredibly good that I couldn't hold back anymore, and I took out my trays and ate some. Ok--not just some, but 1 whole row. EEK! Anyway, a bar that's good enough for me to take out my trays--which then ensues a 3-5 minute tooth brushing--must be worth it!

Note before I go any further: I don't know if this was supposed to happen, but the Heath bites dissolved into the blondies and helped to create a wonderful, chewy bottom layer.

I got the idea from 3 B's....Baseball, Baking & Books, and I'm not sure I made them right, but darn are they good. I decided to use foil on the brownies, which is something I've never done before, and I greased the foil. I'm not sure if I should have or not, and that might be why the brownies are super moist?! Any info would be great.

1 stick melted butter
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 c. flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (I omitted this because I used salted butter)
1 1/3 c. chocolate covered Heath bits (the original recipe called for 1 c., but the bag holds 1 1/3 cups, so I just put the entire thing in there.)

Mix butter and sugar together. Make sure the butter mixture is cool, because you don't want to cook the egg, then add vanilla and egg, beat well. Add flour, baking soda and baking powder, stirring well. Add Heath bits, then pour into a greased and foil lined 8x8 pan.

I baked mine at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.

VERDICT: <3 I love these! Jeff hasn't tasted them, yet, but I suspect he will love them, too.
