Loaded Blondies

I often test out new recipes on Instagram before sharing them on my blog. I love my Instagram friends and love their brutal honesty when it comes to new things.

Fully expecting there to be a significant backlash for these out-of-the-ordinary blondies, I prepared for the worst.

But the opposite happened… people loved them.

These Chocolate Marshmallow Blondies have the most AMAZING secret ingredient!

Truth be told… her bars are a bit tamer than mine. She packed all the delicious goodness inside the bar… but I could not resist a ridiculous pile of marshmallows, potato chips and chocolate sauce drizzled over the top!

Either way, you make them, they will be amazing. Trust me.

Tips for Loaded Blondies

If you want to add the marshmallows and potato chips to the top as I have, just make sure you reserve a bit. I used a chocolate sauce (like Hershey’s) for the top.

The second time I made these (which was within 24 hours… they are that addictive) I drizzled the chocolate over top with a spoon then added more crushed potato chips on top. If you are a rebel you can use a really fun variety of potato chip… like salt and pepper or vinegar!

    Potato chips in blondies? Oh my goodness! It might be a bad thing that I found out these existed. I can definitely see myself making these and then hiding them from everyone else. They look amazing!

  • Teresa says:

    I love these!! Love sweet and salty, but my Mom on the other hand, she hated it! She just plain doesn’t like sweet and salty. In any shape or form! Won’t eat sweet rice, won’t eat caramal salted anything!
    I will change this up a little next time, making it with brownies, instead!

    I love this recipe. It’s a great surprise when someone bites into them. I never tell people what’s on top I like to listen to them guess. I’m baking them right now in 90 degree weather for a cook out tomorrow!!
