Rolo Blondies


My mum has just raised the topic of Rolos. I've already forgotten how or why.

Do they still make Rolos? Used to be Kate's favourite when she was 3. 

Oh so that explains the addiction. I blame the person who was feeding them to me when I was 3.

Sorry. I'd banned such things by the time your sister was born but you and I bonded over chocolate buttons. 

You see, this is why my sister is vegan and I can't stop eating puddings.

I thought it was okay as long as you were happy... you liked cake... 

And Rolos...

Broccoli made you cry... 

Still does.

Remember I said I couldn't stop eating Rolos? Yeah, well, now we know who is to blame.

Anyway, this happened.

For Rolo blondies, you will need (makes 9 squares):

1 egg
115g butter
130g plain flour
130g light brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
100g milk chocolate chips
3 tubes of Rolos
Pinch of salt



Pre-heat the oven to 180c. Melt the butter in the microwave and then add the egg, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.


Add the flour and salt.


Stir until just combined and then stir in the chocolate chips.


Spoon out just over half the mixture into a square tin and smooth out.


Crack open them Rolos!


Make 5 rows of 6 Rolos each, lying them on their flat base.


Spoon out the rest of the mixture in heaps and smooth out. There won't be complete coverage but the mixture will expand when baking.


Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool in the tin completely before cutting into 9 squares and serving.


Enjoy your buttery, chocolatey, caramel goodness.
