Ingredients

Blondie Batter

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup walnuts coarsely chopped

Rocky Road Topping

  • 12 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (2 cups)
  • 14 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts coarsely chopped

Instructions

Blondie

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line an 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the finished Blondies out.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, blend the melted butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together until combined. Add egg and mix well.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients and stir together. Fold in the walnuts. The batter will be super thick.
  • Spread evenly into prepared baking pan using a rubber spatula dipped in water if needed.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before spreading the Rocky Road on top.

Rocky Road Topping

  • In large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl melt chocolate and sweetened condensed milk on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute.
  • Stir until smooth. If needed, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring until completely melted. Stir in vanilla extract. Fold in marshmallows and walnuts.
  • Spread evenly over cooled, baked blondies. Refrigerate until ready to eat and slice into squares.
