For the Malted Kit Kat Blondies
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup malted milk powder
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
18 fun-sized kit kat bars, 14 for the pan and 4 roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a 2.2 (11″ x 7 “) quart baking pan with parchment paper and lightly grease. Set aside.
In a large bowl cream melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Fold in malted milk powder. Add eggs, and beat well.
Gently stir in flour and salt, stirring just until the flour begins to disappear.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Lay the kit kats on top of the batter, then add the remaining batter, smoothing the top once again. Sprinkle with chopped kit kat bars.
Place pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is nice and golden and the middle is not wobbling. Cool completely before cutting into squares and drizzling with chocolate malt sauce.
For the Malted Chocolate Drizzle:
2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons malted milk powder
In a medium-sized microwavable bowl, combine the chocolate and oil, and microwave in 20 seconds increments until chocolate is completely melted. Add malted milk powder, and whisk until smooth. Drizzle on top of cooled blondies.
