Chocolate Chip Twix Blondie Bars With Sea Salt

This is an older recipe of mine that I posted back in 2010. I have been on a kick going through my old posts and updating the pictures. Turns out that way back in 2010 I was a little confused on what a “good picture” was.

Anyhow, I knew these candy bar blondies deserved another day in the sun.

Because they’re good. And you’ll like them.

Plus, I’m all in whenever Twix are involved. Except, can we just chat a quick minute? This is a PSA to the makers of the TWIX bar. Twix are classic and fantastic and everyone loves them. BUT, Twix makers, how about a little sprinkle of sea salt on top. I mean SALTED CARAMEL TWIX? Why isn’t that a thing in the world?

So for the sake of humanity I went ahead and sprinkled a little extra sea salt on top of these. It’s the right move.

An Easy Blondie Bar Dessert Recipe

They are super easy, actually…and pretty knock-out. The blondie itself could actually be the base recipe for ANY add-in candy bars…I mean Snickers, Milky Way, it’s really up to you!

Of course I am a huge Twix girl, and the crunchy shortbread pieces the Twix leave in the blondies is one of my favorite parts!

Chopped Twix Bars for Twix Blondies

Try not to eat too many Twix beforehand though. Turns out one CAN have too much of a good thing…just speaking from personal experience.

They bake up perfectly, but make sure that you let them cool completely before cutting into bars! And like I said a little flaked sea salt on top is a good idea.

I’m really glad I revisited this recipe!

Hope you enjoy!

Description:

Twix Blondies are what sweet caramel dreams are made of! Take a buttery, brown sugar blondie, and load it up with tons of chopped Twix Bars, sea salt and chocolate chips. These homemade blondies are extra chewy with crunchy bits of shortbread baked inside!


Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon flaked (or coarse) sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 30 mini Twix bars coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional – more flaked sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9×13 baking pan with foil and coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the butter and brown sugar on low speed. Add in the eggs, vanilla, baking powder and salt and mix until smooth.
  3. With the mixer still on low add the the flour and mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in the Twix and chocolate chips until evenly incorporated.
  5. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes until the edges are set and the center is almost set.
  6. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Notes:

You could also make this recipe without the stand mixer. A bowl and a wooden spoon will work just fine!

*Be sure to cool the bars completely before cutting. I often chill mine to make the bars pretty.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Can you use salted butter? And if so do I omit the tsp in the batter (and just sprinkle some on top)?

When should we sprinkle the final salt on so that it doesn’t disappear but it also sticks to the blondie?

Can I bake it on the parchment paper?

Cannot wait to make this recipe, how long would you say these last for? And is in an airtight container the best way to store these, at room temperature?

This was the perfect way to use up all the extra candy from Halloween! I made these with Twix, added a few Milky Way’s because I was a little short of Twix. Took “most” of them to work and they were a hit! I didn’t dare leave them at home…with only me and the hubby that would have been dangerous.

Everyone raved, thank you so much! I think these would be awesome with some peanut butter cups added also!

Whoops…just re-read printable recipe…butter IS melted…so, the only difference is the topping of crushed Twix bars and melted chocolate.

I am wondering why the printable version of the recipe is different from this one…in the printable, butter not melted, and it calls for extra Twix bars as a topping, along with a drizzle of chocolate…

How many regular size twix bars would you recommend using instead of mini size?

Are “mini” Twix bars the same “fun” size? I have an assortment of sizes leftover from Halloween and want to make sure I am using the correct amount. Do you have an approximate measurement of candy bar used?

This is a great question! I would like to make these this weekend. I know they have fun size, I have never seen mini. 🙂

Yes! Sea Salt Caramel Twix need to be a thing!! Also – these look so good!

January 16, 2017 5:35 pm

These look so yummy! Was looking for a superbowl treat and found these. Cannot wait to try them out!

Adding twix to blondies sounds amazing! I need to make a batch!

These look delicious and I cannot wait to try them…they are in the oven right now. Just wanted to point out that you have vanilla as an ingredient, but it isn’t listed in the steps 🙁 Unfortunately, this got left out while baking because I just followed the steps and never checked to make sure I had used all the ingredients. Here’s to hoping they still turn out okay for the holiday party tonight….
