Sweet Treats Saturday: Salted Chocolate Chip Blondies

My husband has been asking for me to remake the brown butter toffee blondies that I made around this time last year.  This recipe was a way for me to still try a new recipe, but also curb his taste-buds.  I love making blondies because they always require the most basic ingredients.  The one item that I don't normally stock in my pantry, but did happen to have on hand, were the butterscotch chips.  You could omit them and replace with more chocolate chips, or even use peanut butter chips (hubby's suggestion).

Salted Chocolate Chip Blondies
Recipe from Mountain Mama Cooks

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
14 tbsp butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 tbsp sea salt

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 in baking dish.
2. Whisk flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and set aside.
3. Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until melted, about 2 minutes.  Continue cooking, swirling the pan constantly until butter is dark goldon brown and has a nutty aroma, approx. 1 to 3 minutes.
4. Remove the skillet from heat and transfer butter to large heatproof bowl.  Add both sugars and vanilla to bowl, and whisk until fully incorporated.  Add egg and egg yolk and whisk until mixture is smooth and no lumps remain.
5. Using a spatula, stir in the flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
6. Press batter into baking dish.  Sprinkle with sea salt. I used just under the 1 tbsp as it was a considerable amount.  Bake bars for 20 to 25 minutes, taking care not to overcook or they will be dry.  Transfer bars to a cooling rack and cool completely.
