I think I have made it pretty clear on here that I truly believe sprinkles make everything better. But just in case I haven't convinced you yet...I present to you these White Chocolate Confetti Blondies...
I don't know about you...but just looking at them makes me feel better. And eating them...that's a whole new level of happiness.
This recipe is the result of what I like to call a Special Sprinkles Makeover. I take an old recipe that I have been using for years, and give it a Sprinkles for Breakfast update. The original recipe, Chocolate Chip Toffee Blondies, was actually one of my first posts where I was still taking pictures on the the fire escape of my tiny New York City apartment.
Thankfully, I have come a long way since then. At least in my photography skills. I'm not so sure about other areas in my life, but that's a conversation for another time. What's important right now is that I continue telling you how amazing these blondies are.
The base is a soft and chewy brown sugar blondie filled with white chocolate chips and sprinkles (of course). Then, using a "poke cake" method, I added a brown sugar glaze that not only seeps down into the blonie, but also makes a nice crust on top. Basically, the result is pretty freakin' amazing.
