Strawberry Pop-Tart Blondies

Posted on

Imagine biting into a buttery, chewy bar filled with sweet strawberry jam – it’s like having the best of both worlds with Pop-Tarts and classic blondies all in one delicious treat! These adorable bar cookies are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a fun party dessert, and the best part? They’re super easy to make!

Here’s how to make the best Pop-Tart blondies:

  • Layer it right: Spread half of the blondie batter in the pan, add the jam, then top it with the rest of the batter. If spreading the batter over the jam is tricky, try dolloping spoonfuls of batter on top and gently bringing them together.
  • Choose your jam: While we went for classic strawberry jam, feel free to use any jam or jelly you have on hand.
  • Chill out: Let the blondies cool completely before frosting them to ensure the glaze looks perfect.
  • Use the right tools: A serrated knife will give you cleaner cuts, but a chef’s knife works fine too.
