White Chocolate Apple-Pecan Blondies

White Chocolate Apple-Pecan Blondies
It’s excitingly eerie and getting dark around here!  
 
{A prickly PIRATE and his first mate, WOODY}
With frighteningly fun trick-or-treaters ringing our doorbell….
 
 
a cackling witch has her candles lit and pumpkins carved and she’s cast a wicked spell!
 
 
A potion of poison apples, chopped white chocolate, and toasty nuts in her blistering cauldron. “Hocus Pocus,”working her magic, she’s created a hair-raising new B L O N D I E  to chew on! 
 
 
Our wacky witch is horrified, but we are delighted.  In the spirit of batty fun, our fairy tale White Chocolate Apple-Pecan Blondies are disguised as goodies this Halloween making monsters howl for more creating sweet dreams!  
 
Please pack ’em up and enjoy all autumn long, especially on leaf-peeking days, tasty tailgating parties, and harvest hayrides.

White Chocolate Apple-Pecan Blondies
 
My grandsons ask for Blondies all the time. My TRICK was adding a little extra to their favorite TREAT!
Serves: 24 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 (11. 5 ounce) bag white chocolate chips, divided
  • 5 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup apples, peeled and chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter and flour a 13x9" baking pan.
  3. In a double boiler or metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water, melt 1 cup of the white chocolate chips and butter, stirring until smooth and carefully remove top of double boiler or bowl from heat.
  4. Cool chocolate mixture to room temperature.
  5. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla until thickened and pale and beat in white chocolate mixture.
  6. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into chocolate mixture and stir just until batter is combined well. Stir in nuts, apples and remaining white chocolate chips and spread mixture evenly in pan.
  7. Bake blondies in middle of the oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
  8. Cool blondies completely in pan on a rack before cutting.
Notes
I melted a little white chocolate in the microwave on high power, checking every 15 seconds. Watch carefully, it will scorch easily. I added a little orange food color and maple extract to "glue" pumpkins and candy corn to bars, decorating them for Halloween. However, they are spooktacular on their own, embellish only if you dare!
 
 Here’s to a “Happy Halloween” friends!  Thanks for indulging me with this one…

    Awwwwww!! They are just adorable! I don’t know how your heart can stand it to have so many precious grandchildren. I mean that very seriously, too. They are all so cute.

    And the blondies look wonderful. I’m imagining the combination of pecan, apple, and white chocolate, and it sounds delicious.

    I love all those adorable little trick-or-treaters in their cute costumes. We had hundreds (it seemed that way) last night because the weather was perfect. My grandkids were over the top excited.

    Since I have an apple orchard, I love new recipes that use apples in them. Your blondie recipe sounds delicious.
