White Chocolate Chip Blondies with Caramel Chai Sauce

This is a sponsored post brought to you by International Delight Chai Tea Lattes.

Hi guys!  What does your happy place look like?  I mean, really.  Are you a beach bum, dreaming of sand between your toes and salty air in your lungs, or are you in heaven soaking up the sun poolside with an ice cold drink?  Maybe you're a spa gal with a mani-pedi addiction? Or an out-doorsy, communing-with-nature type?  Personally, I am never happier than when I am in my kitchen, baking something sweet and yummy to share with the people I love.  You can have your trips to Paris or your concert-going night life if that's your thing.  Being a bit of a homebody, I prefer a quiet kitchen with a stocked pantry any day.  When I really need to unwind and re-energize myself, I pour myself a cool beverage and spend some quality time with my mixer!



Mondays are my favorite -- that's when we have our "Family Night" . . . and I have the perfect excuse to bake.  When I get home from work, I head straight to the kitchen to chef up a yummy treat that will be the highlight of our evening as we play games and laugh, reconnecting as a family.  The cares of the day melt away the minute I begin that weekly ritual. One of my best creations lately are these White Chocolate Chip Blondies with Caramel Chai Sauce, inspired by International Delight Chai Tea Lattes.   {We can't eat healthy every day -- Family Night is always dessert night.} The Chai spice flavor in the sauce takes this dessert to a whole 'nother level of goodness.


Blondies:

3/4 C butter, melted
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 C. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 C. white chocolate chips


Caramel Chai Sauce:

1 C. International Delight Caramel Chai Tea Latte
2 T. butter
1/2 C. white chocolate chips
1/4 C. sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well in between.  Stir in vanilla extract, then add flour, baking powder, and baking soda.  Stir until well incorporated.  Fold in white chocolate chips.  Grease a 9x13 pan.  Pour batter into pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.  

While the Blondies are baking, prepare the sauce by combining all ingredients in a small pot.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid burning.  Continue to cook and stir until mixture is bubbly and begins to thicken.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  {I'm impatient so I stuck the pan in the freezer to help it along.}  The sauce will be pretty thin, but will thicken more as it cools.

Remove the Blondies from oven and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of Caramel Chai Sauce, and a few more white chocolate chips for garnish.


These were so good, I'm pretty sure everyone licked their plate clean so none of the delicious Caramel Chai sauce went to waste.  Whatever your happy place is, International Delight Chai Tea Lattes can make it even better!
