Heath Bar Blondies

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that you all have the kind of holiday that you want. Whether that means you’re in the kitchen all day, or you keep it super simple to spend time with family.

My little family are going to be having our feast with my parents. We have not been home for Thanksgiving in several years, and that’s the best part. In the few years we’ve been on our own, we’ve made Thanksgiving a very laid back day and have loved it. Sometimes we go all out and have friends over with every side dish and pie you could imagine. Other years we’ve kept it to a few vital sides with a turkey breast. But no matter what, we try to keep it low key. You only have to be in the kitchen if you want to be. It helps that I like to be in the kitchen most of the time.

On to this recipe, which really has nothing to do with Thanksgiving. Except that both are delicious.

I love all things Heath or toffee, and these blondies are the perfect place to show off their numminess. They’re chewy and perfectly sprinkled with chocolate chips and Heath bits.
