rainbow blondie bars (3 ways).....!



....so i may have mentioned i have a thing for rainbows over the couple of years that i've been doing this blogging thing.....like here...or here....or here...or here..!...and of course i have a rainbow pinterest board too....it makes my rainbow obsession so much easier!...

rainbow blondie bars

...these are just a simple blondie bar recipe (without any add-ins)....double the batch and divide the batter up into separate bowls....(kinda looks gross in this pic...right??)


....then add whatever colors you like in your rainbow.....(colors will be darker because the batter is dark to start with--used the color gels for this)....


....then spread one layer at a time in your baking pain.....try to get the layers as even as possible.....


.....much easier said then done!...


.....then cut up into bars....

....or cut into rainbow shapes and add some clouds with candy melt or white chocolate chips....

....or cut the rainbows in half and add pot's of gold for st. patty's day....(also made from candy melt and round yellow flat sprinkles)....

....truthfully i'm not really happy with how these turned out....the colors could have been better...next time i'd use a recipe that isn't as dark to start with (this was really tasty but used brown sugar)....also the air pockets kinda bummed me out when you cut the bars.....probably not a major issue when you do regular blondies or brownies but since i was going for the rainbow look i was looking for it to be more uniform....plus i don't think i got all the brown sugar chunks totally dissolved in the batter either which left some air pockets too....so that's probably a technique thing versus the recipe....and lastly i was hoping for straighter color lines but again easier said then done when layering the tinted batters in....oh well you bake and you learn!

.....still linking up to these fun bloghops....hope to see you over there too!...thanks for stopping by and have a great week, and really looking forward to all the st patty's day inspired treats to come....!

  1. I've tried making rainbow cupcakes before, and I realize everytime you put some colouring into the batter, it wont perk up as much when you bake. I'm not sure it's just me, or the colouring, or something else. Anyways, the rainbow bars look deliciously yummy!
