Brewer's Blondies

Oh man. If you think you have tried something amazing, wait until you try this. The recipe is super simple yet the interesting ingredients give it such an amazing flavor. You will not believe you made it yourself. Do not let the malt and malted milk balls scare you if you don't like that kind of thing. It really doesn't come through so much in the end. Jason really loved them and he isn't into that kind of thing. These were so gooey and amazing. I am telling you. Just make them already.

Brewer's Blondies
Baked: New Frontiers in Baking
by Matt Lewis and Renato Polafito

2 1/3 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 t salt
2 T malted milk powder (Ovaltine Malt is what I found)
14 tablespoons softened butter cut into small chunks
1 3/4 c firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 t pure vanilla
3/4 c chopped malted milk balls
3/4 c semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c toasted walnuts chopped

Preheat oven to 350. Butter the bottom of a 9X13 pan.
In a med bowl mix flour, salt, malt powder and baking powder. Sift. I use a whisk.
In a bowl with a mixer cream the brown sugar and butter until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined.
Add the flour mix and whoppers, chips and nuts. The mixture will be thick. Press into the pan and baker 25-30 minutes of until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on a rack at least 20 minutes. You can enjoy a warm slice with vanilla ice cream. Oh yummy.

I am telling you. If you want to blow your own mind, make these. You will not be disappointed.
