Hershey’s Nugget Blondies

Hershey’s Nugget Blondies are irresistible. We always have a lot of Hershey’s Nugget candies leftover from Halloween or Christmas so it’s the perfect time to make these jewels. I started with one of my favorite, yet simple, shortbread recipes. Then I added coarsely chopped Hershey’s Nuggets…in the batter and on top. Yep, these were terrific. Especially if you enjoy a little chocolate in your dessert. 🙂

I made these cookies for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. Anything made with Hershey’s Nuggets is always a hit. Besides, we have a lot of friends who are chocolate lovers so they love having a side of candy along with their cookies. 🙂 These cookies are not too difficult to make, although chopping up the candies for the recipe will probably take you about 15-20 minutes, depending on how fast you are. I think I cut each candy in sixths and that worked out pretty well.

If you’re looking for a luscious cookie to make for tailgating parties, backyard barbecues, or even holiday fun, then Hershey’s Nugget Blondies are sure to please. They will be great to add to your Super Bowl party menu, too. (wink, wink).
