Butterbeer Blondies

Sharing is caring!

These are butterscotch and caramel bars, but I am really certain that they taste just like getting a Butterbeer from The Three Broomsticks. They are super rich, buttery, caramely and butterscotch. Just what you need to snack on during a Harry Potter Party, or while curled up reading a good book.

Things have been a mixture of both crazy hectic and restful lately. My “To-Do” list is long and my calendar is full, but the weather has been utterly gorgeous lately and I find myself curled in a chair reading every chance I get.
Our crazy schedule must be wearing Ladybug out, because she has been taking some epic naps this week (the other day she napped from 12:30 to 5!!!)

Instead of taking care of things I should be doing, or need to be doing (like dishes and laundry), I find myself doing things that I want to be doing. Like planning someone’s second birthday party (two months early…) or reading an entire book in two days (I haven’t done that in so long, I love it!)

I made these amazing bars for a bake sale that I helped out with last week. I have been wanting to make them for a while, and so I jumped at the chance to actually get in the kitchen and bake!
The bars themselves are perfect -gooey and soft. They make me want to go back and read the Harry Potter series again (for the 11th time) or at least have a marathon movie watching day (for the 85th time).
After turning in all my bars for the bake sale, Joel and I snacked on the few crumbs and crusty edges I left for us, and were immediately sad that I gave them all away. I’ve already been asked told that I need to make these again, and soon. And I whole heartedly agree! In fact, I might make them again tomorrow!
Make sure to serve them with some Harry Potter pumpkin juice for a real treat!
