Chewy Pumpkin Toffee Blondies

This blondie recipe takes an all time favorite to a whole new level. Rich, buttery cookie flavor comes together with pumpkin pureé and white chocolate for an irresistible seasonal treat. 

  • Creamy REAL pumpkin adds flavor and texture. 
  • White chocolate and toffee bits add phenomenal flavor.
  • Easy to whip up in one bowl and ready in under an hour!

The end result is a chewy-soft texture, and the whole recipe takes just a few minutes to mix and get in the oven. Honestly, the hardest part is waiting for them to bake and cool before you can eat them.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make pumpkin blondies.
  • Light Brown Sugar – Using only brown sugar brings more of a caramel-like flavor and chewy texture to the blondies.
  • Pumpkin Puree – Be sure to buy 100% pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling, which has additional spices and sugar added.
  • Egg Yolk – Helps bind the ingredients together and adds a touch of extra richness.
  • White Chocolate Morsels– Delicious white chocolate flavor, pairing perfectly with the brown sugar and pumpkin flavors.
  • Toffee Bits – Toffee pieces are the finishing touch, adding a delicious crunch and even big flavor. Look for pre-cut toffee bits for ease of use. Or save some of the bits when cutting up our english toffee.

How to Make Pumpkin Blondies

  • Melt your butter. Melting it creates an extra-rich texture and keeps the blondies deliciously dense. Cream your melted butter with the sugar and pumpkin to ensure a smooth texture and even distribution of pumpkin flavor. 
  • Mix in one bowl and save some dishes! Fold in the white chocolate chips just before baking, so your batter doesn’t get overmixed. 
  • Pour your batter into a lined pan. No scooping required!
  • Bake until just golden on top. Cool completely before glazing, then add the toffee bits before the glaze sets. Refrigerate so your icing has time to set, then it’s ready for slicing.

Instructions 

  • Line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat brown sugar with melted butter and pumpkin until smooth. Beat in egg yolk, salt and flour. Fold in white chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes. Remove and cool completely before adding glaze.
  • For the glaze, whisk the sugar and milk together until smooth. Pour over cooled blondies. Sprinkle with toffee bits immediately. Refrigerate for one hour (or until ready to serve). Cut and enjoy!

Notes

  • Be sure to use pumpkin pureé, not pumpkin pie filling. Pie filling has extra spices added to it that will throw off the flavor balance of these blondies. 
  • Pumpkin blondies are a perfect travel treat. Pack them in school lunches, take on a picnic, or travel on a plane with them. 
  • They’re also a great choice for mailing treats during the holidays. Wrap them individually and pack them in tins to send to family and friends. 
  • Store: Keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week. Or freeze for up to 3 months.
