October is finally here! It's the most wonderful time of the year!
I know that I have mentioned before that I am a fall slash October slash Harry Potter slash pumpkin FAH-A-reak, so I couldn't be any happier that my favorite month is finally upon us. I've also been squirreling away recipes like a loony tune lately b/c amazingly delicious ideas just keep popping into my head, so I am absolutely *thrilled* to finally be sharing one with you!
Like, no lie, I have been waiting to post this recipe for months.
Bubbling frickin' butterbeer friggin' blondie bites.
I can't even handle the joys of cooking sometimes.
These little jewels are just frappin' amazing, and they bring me back to our gloriously fall festooned wedding day!
Because our enchanted affair totally had butterbeer cupcakes garnished with chocolate witches hats (along with a sparkly sorting hat to guide our guests)!!!

You would be if you tasted one of those cupcakes! But, because I love my mini-minions so much, I have created a recipe that can almost compare to how amazing they were.
I'm incredibly impatient and only had one mini muffin tin we were making the big move yesterday, I decided to make both mini blondie bites and a basic blondie bar in order to save myself some time. I'm glad that I ended up doing that b/c it will give some of you uber-busy readers a way to enjoy these babies without spending too much time in the kitchen.
If you have visted The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, then you have had a cup of their butterbeer.
That junk is goooooood and topped with this amazing marshmallow fluffiness.
While I was researching for this recipe, I saw several people had made their own versions of butterbeer blondies; however, not a one of them were topped with any marshmallow cream!
Well, these golden nibbles are brimming with the billowing clouds of fluff.
I went ahead and made a batch of my homemade marshmallow frosting for these, but you could easily skip that step and use a jar of pre-made marshmallow cream instead if that'll be easier for you. I'm sure it will broil up just as beautifully.
It's just that I'm trying really hard to steer clear of artificial foods, fillers, and ingredients so when I get preggers again, it won't be hard for me to transition into a crazy healthy lifestyle.
Oh, and just an FYI...butterscotch chips & booze don't count in that equation b/c IMHO, butterscotch and booze are both nectar of the gods so they have to be pretty good for you right?
But I promise that I'll change that way of thinking as soon as I have a new little pumpkin in my oven.
Getting to know you...
Have you ever made butterbeer?
What's your favorite way to use butterscotch?
Will you buy or make the marshmallow fluff?
