Blondie Brownies with Brown Sugar Frosting

18 Jul

We caught the new Harry Potter movie on its opening night with some friends on Thursday and though we were unable to join them for dinner, I offered to make something for dessert to bring to the theatre while we waiting in line.  I glanced around the house and pulled together ingredients to make a batch of blondie brownies.  Here is a the recipe.

*Warning: these brownies are ridiculously sweet and will most likely give you the shakes and a sudden urge to kill someone (if necessary) for more. 

Expecto Patronum!

Blondie Brownies with Brown Sugar Frosting

from Betty Crocker

Brownies
1
cup granulated sugar
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup butter (do not use margarine), softened
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
eggs
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
Frosting
1/3
cup butter (do not use margarine)
2/3
cup packed brown sugar
3
tablespoons milk
2
cups powdered sugar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1/2
cup chopped pecans (I used sliced almonds)
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and the eggs with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until light and fluffy. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. In ungreased 13×9-inch pan, spread batter evenly.
  2. Bake 20 to 23 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  3. In 2-quart saucepan, melt 1/3 cup butter over low heat. Stir in 2/3 cup brown sugar; cook over low heat 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in milk; cook until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in powdered sugar and vanilla, mixing well with spoon after each addition, until smooth and spreadable. If necessary, add more milk, a few drops at a time. Spread frosting over brownies. Immediately sprinkle with pecans. For brownies, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows.
