Rolo Chocolate Chip Blondies


    Rolo Chocolate Chip Blondies


    • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter Melted ((1 Stick))
    • 1 Large Egg
    • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar (Packed)
    • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon Salt (Or to taste)
    • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    • 36 Rolo Candies (Unwrapped about 3/4 of a 12 oz bag)


    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
    Step 2
    To a large, microwave-safe bowl add the butter and heat to melt, about 1 minute on high power.
    Step 3
    Wait momentarily before adding the egg so you don’t scramble it. Add the egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
    Step 4
    Add the flour, salt, and stir until just combined, don’t overmix.
    Step 5
    Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
    Step 6
    Turn slightly more than half the batter out into the prepared pan (about 60% or so, just eyeball it so that the bottom of the pan is completely covered, albeit thin coverage); set the remaining batter aside.
    Step 7
    Evenly place the Rolos in the pan so that each Rolo is sitting on its ‘base’ rather than laying on its side. I made 6 rows of 6 Rolos each.
    Step 8
    Drop the remaining batter over the Rolos in heaping rounded tablespoons. Use a spatula to smooth the ‘blobs’ of batter together. You won’t have complete coverage and that’s okay because batter expands a bit while baking and some of the balder patches ‘grow togther’.
    Step 9
    Bake for about 20 to 22 minutes, or until the top is set in the center and done; don’t overbake. Blondies firm up as they cool.
    Step 10
    Place pan on a wire rack to cool for at least 90 minutes before slicing and serving.
