Tips From the Chef
- Microwave the candies in intervals to prevent them from burning.
- Do not overmix the batter to ensure the blondies stay tender.
- Avoid overcooking the caramel—it should be soft and gooey, not hard and brittle.
- Don’t rush the cooling process. Allow the blondies to cool completely for the best texture and flavor.
Storage and Reheating
Bit-O-Honey blondies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week. If you want to extend their freshness, refrigerate them for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw frozen blondies in the refrigerator overnight before serving. If you prefer them warm, reheat in the microwave for a few seconds, but be careful not to overheat as the caramel can become extremely hot.
