Peppermint Bark Blondies

Makes 10-12 slices

I am so sad Christmas is over! You're telling me that I have to wait another 363 days until I get to celebrate all over again?! Major bummer...but nonetheless I had such a great time celebrating this year with family and friends! We hosted Christmas Eve dinner at our house for the second time in a row and it was an absolute blast! 

We did a gift exchange (that got pretty brutal), had some amazing food, and got to spend some quality time with one another. It was another great Christmas for the books! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Now onto the drool worthy peppermint bark blondies...

What You Need
1 stick of butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 TSP baking powder
1/4 TSP salt
1 TSP vanilla extract
1/8 TSP nutmeg
Pinch of ginger
Pinch of white pepper
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
8 oz peppermink bark, broken up
2 candy canes, crushed

1. Preheat the oven to 350° and grease an 8x8 (give or take) baking dish.
2. Using a stand or hand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy. Next add the egg and vanilla extract. 
3. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and white pepper. 
4. Slowly, add the dry ingredients to the wet until fully combined and then fold in the white chocolate chips.
5. Transfer the dough into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. 
6. While still warm, top with peppermint bark and fresh candy canes. Let melt and then place in freezer for 5-10 minutes to set. Enjoy all the chocolatey goodness!
