Apple Toffee Blondies with Brown Sugar Frosting

I have a serious problem in the fall.  This is my 9th post in a row that is something sweet!  Perhaps I should get back to that diet plan I've been trying to stay on ;)  In any case, we visited the local orchard this past weekend and had so much fun with some friends!  We picked up some delicious Granny Smith and Cameo apples to add to the mix of the Golden Delicious ones we got a few weeks ago.  Now, how to use them?!  I have TONS of apple recipes on my radar, and this is the first of many I will be attempting.  

These bars are great...kind of gave me feeling of caramel apple in my mouth with the toffee bits.  They are super easy to make and will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Apple Toffee Blondies with Brown Sugar Frosting


2/3 cup room temperature butter

2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 eggs2 tsp vanilla
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt1 cup peeled, chopped tart apple (1 large)
1/2 cup toffee bits


1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spray 9×13 baking pan lightly with cooking or baking spray.
Cream butter and brown sugar in mixer until smooth.Add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium until combined. On low, add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mixing until just combined. Stir in the chopped apples and toffee bits until evenly distributed. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes until the center is set (Mine took closer to 40...just check them :).

Let cool completely before slicing or frosting.


Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add brown sugar and milk and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in powdered sugar with a whisk.  Let cool until it thickens enough to spread.Stir before spreading on top of blondies.  Let frosting set for 30 minutes and then cut into bars.
