Irish Coffee Bars - Chewy Delicious Blondies

Recipe by Dans La Lune
READY IN: 45mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, and line with parchment. (If you don't have parchment, you can use PAM with good results as well).
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Melt the 2 cups of butter, and pour into a mixing bowl with brown sugar, ground coffee, and 1 teaspoon salt.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Stir in eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Stir in flour mixture until just combined.
  • Pour batter into pan, and sprinkle with almonds.
  • Bake 27 - 30 minutes, depending on how chewy you like your blondies (a shorter baking time results in a chewier blondie). Let cool completely before adding glaze.
  • Make the glaze by whisking together 1 tablespoon of melted butter and whiskey.
  • Gradually whisk in confectioners sugar until glaze is thick but pourable (you may not need all the sugar).
  • Using a spoon or a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tip, drizzle glaze over blondies in a rough crosshatch pattern.
  • Let glaze dry 1 hour.
  • Cut blondies into 2 inch squares.
  • Blondies can be stored at room temperature up to 2 days, or freeze in an airtight container for longer keeping.
