One way, or another… You’re gonna make these. You’re gonna bake them, bake them, bake them, bake them. One day, maybe next week. You’re gonna make them. You’re gonna eat them, eat them, eat them, eat them.

Hopefully you got that song reference and laughed. Maybe just a little?

I actually made these for Jonny on Father’s Day. It just took me this long to get around to posting the recipe. I know you’ve been waiting anxiously though, so without further delay I bring you….

Rolo Blondies

makes one 9 x 13″ pan
(adapted from blondies recipe on simply recipes)
1 stick melted butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup mini Rolos caramel candies (Sold in the single serve candy section of your local mini-mart if you’re lucky like me. Sure, you can use big Rolos too. You’ll just have to unwrap them all individually. I believe it would be worth it.)

(Sneaky Little Hands optional.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray then line with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk melted butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add in egg and vanilla and whisk to combine. Sift dry ingredients together in a separate mixing bowl then add to brown sugar mixture and whisk to combine. Pour into prepared pan and spread with an offset spatula. Press Rolo candies into batter in rows.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes. The batter will rise up and smother the Rolos in buttery goodness and you’ll be left with something that looks pretty close to this…

Now go make some and eat them. (Sharing is also optional.)
