A blondie brownie topped with a sweet potato, pecan and marshmallow fluff layer and drizzled with melted butterscotch chips.
Do you like layered bar desserts? Playing around with all the different taste and texture combinationsthat can be created is fun. The possibilites are endless for whipping up a new batch of deliciousness. Admittedly, a couple of extra dirty bowls to contend with but dirty dishes have always been the yin to the yang of my love of experimenting in the kitchen.
Not all of my kitchen experiments turn out the way I envision, but these bars hit the mark. A chewy blonde brownie, topped with a souffle like layer of mashed sweet potato mixed with chopped pecans and marshmallow fluff. The grand finale a heavy drizzle of melted butterscotch chips.
These bars stayed soft for several days and were even better the next day. They are not too sweet and would be great served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Sweet Potato Blondie Brownies
2 Sticks Unsalted Butter – Softened
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Sweet Potato Layer:
1 Cup Mashed Sweet Potatoes
1 Cup Marshmallow Fluff
1 Cup Chopped Pecans
2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Butterscotch Chips
Preheat to 350 degrees.
Mix salt and flour in a small bowl.
In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer; cream butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract together until fluffy. Add eggs and mix until thoroughly incorporated. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Spread mixture into a 9X13 dish. I used a glass dish and did not grease or spray.
Mix mashed sweet potatoes, marshmallow fluff, maple syrup and cinnamon until combined. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Fold in chopped pecans. Spread over brownie mixture.
Bake 26 to 28 minutes, until sweet potato mixture is set. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool.
To melt butterscotch chips, place in microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring chips after each interval until fully melted, two rounds in the microwave should do it. Drizzle cooled bars with melted butterscotch chips.
