I was looking for a fun champagne recipe to take to a friend's bridal shower, but I couldn't find one. That's when I came up with this twist on blondies. The recipe calls for white chocolate chips, but sometimes I like to use butterscotch or even chocolate instead. —Heather Karow, Burnett, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup champagne
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white baking chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts, optional
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons champagne

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8-in. square baking pan with parchment, letting ends extend up sides. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and champagne (batter may appear curdled). In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Fold in baking chips and, if desired, nuts.
  2. Spread into prepared pan. Bake until edges are brown and center is set (do not overbake), 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  3. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over blondies. Lifting with parchment, remove blondies from pan. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.
