Gingerbread Twix Blondies

Gingerbread Twix Blondies

I love baking this time of the year.  There are a lot of seasonal items during the Christmas holidays that you don’t see year-round.  Gingerbread Twix is one of them.  So if I’m bombarding you with all these sweets, my apologies!

Gingerbread Twix Blondies

I made a big batch of these to share with the neighbors this holiday season.  One bite and I was thinking I should keep them for ourselves.  Haha! It was hard, but I packaged them and gave them away.  While shooting this, I helped myself to a couple of pieces.  It was hard to stop at one.  Then after dinner, I had another.  I know, I can’t help it.  They’re THAT good.  The end (have a great weekend, by the way!).

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup of light muscovado sugar
  • 2/3 cup of unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Gingerbread Twix Blondies

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9″ x 13″-inch baking pan with non-stick baking spray.  Line it with a sheet of parchment paper leaving a generous overhang for easy removal; set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, salt and baking soda; set aside.

Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together sugars, butter and vanilla extract until combined.  Add eggs and continue to mix.  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just moistened.  Batter will be thick.  Fold in chopped gingerbread Twix.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly with a spatula.  If using white chocolate chips, sprinkle on top of the batter.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges turn golden brown and toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Allow the blondies to cool completely before cutting into squares.
