I’m on a chocolate chip roll. (Mmmm….chocolate chip rolls. Now there’s an idea.)
Here’s another really good dessert that easily feeds a crowd.
Coconut Blondies with Toffee and Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut, toasted and cooled
1 cup toffee chips or chopped Heath bars
1. In a bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter and the brown sugar, beating the mixture until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.
2. In a small bowl whisk together the salt, the baking powder and the flour. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, and beat the batter until it is just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, coconut and toffee.
3. Spread the batter evenly in a buttered and floured 13- by 9-inch baking pan. Bake in the middle of a preheated 350°F oven for 30 minutes, or until it begins to pull away from the sides of the pan and center looks set.
4. Let cool completely in the pan on a rack and cut into squares.
