Raspberry Choc Chip Blondies

So you might notice by all the pink and red in the pictures that these blondies were meant to be a Valentines post. Oops, better late then never! These blondies are too awesome only to be enjoyed on just one particular day anyway. They're seriously my absolute favourite treat, everyone that had one made various Mmmm/yummm sounds while eating and I've been daydreaming about them ever since.

The blondies have a yummy buttery caramel flavour from the brown sugar and are perfectly gooey in the middle and crispy on top. Not only are these tasty squares packed with choc-chips but they're topped with Mms too. If you haven't tried raspberry Mms yet, do it! they're what make these blondies really wow.
For the Blondies
225 grams butter (melted)
2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch salt
2 cups plain flour
230 grams choc chips
100 grams Raspberry Mms (half a bag)

To make the Blondies- Line a 12 x 9 inch baking pan with baking paper and preheat oven to 180 degrees c.

Beat together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth.

Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.

Stir in the flour and pinch of salt.

Mix through the chocolate chips or filling of your choice.
Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and roughly smooth out.

Finally top the blondie mixture with a sprinkle of raspberry Mms.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until set in the middle.

Allow the blondies to cool before cutting into squares.

Princess First Birthday

I'm beginning to feel finally that my brain is getting out of holiday mode, I've been back to week 3 weeks and still haven't quite got back into the swing of things. Its time to kick 2014 into gear, starting with the blog. My kitchenaid and I have been taking a well earned break from baking since Christmas, also with the amount of chocolates and treats left in my house baking more sweets seemed a little much. 

I'm starting the year in true ButterHeartsSugar style, with a bit of pretty, a bit of cute and a whole load of pink. A short post today to share this super girly princess party my cousin and I put together for her beautiful baby girl's first birthday. The day couldn't have been better, I woke up to smiles from a tutu wearing birthday girl, the weather was prefect and Miss Mia loved her party.
