Birthday Cake Blondies!

When we first came out with our birthday cake frappe, we knew we were about to celebrate every day like it was our birthday, something sweet, festive, and indulgent! But when we found out blondie day was coming, we had the sweetest epiphany…birthday cake blondies. There’s so many recipes out there but we decided to take the careful balanced flavor we created in our frappe blend and infuse it in a recipe that makes cooking from scratch easy. With shortcuts like these, these blondies are definitely more fun – to make!

A lot of people confuse blondies and brownies, blondies use vanilla instead of cocoa but the end result is a dense crumbly square that can have all sorts of toppings. Usually they don’t have frosting but we decided to break some rules and you’ll be glad we did because this drizzled white chocolate is a winner! Take a bite into a buttery cakey delight that takes less 30 minutes to make and will make anyone feel special.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 single serve packet Frozen Bean birthday cake frappe
  • 8 tablespoons or 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large cold egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sprinkles (mix and match if you’d like!)

 

 

To get started, preheat your oven to 350 F. In a bowl, whisk the sugar and butter until they’re incorporated. Add in the eggs and beat it into the mix. Give your arms a mini workout before our baked treats haha! It’ll feel almost like a caramel glaze.

Now take your dry ingredients with the flour, baking powder, birthday cake frappe mix, and salt. You can filter it through a sufter to aerate them if you like your consistency to be fluffier and less dense.

Add this in intervals to our mixture and whisk. Once it’s incorporated, fold in sprinkles. Optionally, you could also fold in white chocolate chips if you have a particularly big sweet tooth!

Grease or place parchment paper in the tray (we like coconut oil for the extra boost it adds) you are using and pour the mixture in, smoothening the top if you need to. Bake for 30 minutes.

Let it cool. Cut into 9 squares. When you are ready to ice, pop the white chocolate chips into the microwave for a minute. Unlike chocolate, melting it won’t make it lose its luster so ice away! Top with remaining sprinkles.

Whether you pair these blondies with tea or coffee, tag us in your own  creations @frozenbean! To enjoy later, put in an airtight container which will keep for a week.

New Product: 21 oz Latte Canisters

Ordering coffee from a coffee shop can quickly become expensive, especially when you realize that the average American coffee drinker consumes 3 cups of coffee every day. At popular coffee shops the typical price of coffee ranges from $3 to $5. That means coffee consumers spend up to $15 per day at coffee shops. While most coffee shop alternatives can save you money, the quality is also greatly reduced; and after all, nobody wants to drink bad coffee. Daily coffee consumers need an efficient in home coffee experience that reduces costs while maintaining quality. That's where Frozen Bean products come in. Our products are the same exact products used in coffee houses, but instead they are sold in retail stores for a fraction of the price.
Throughout the month of April, The Frozen Bean will be announcing brand new products and flavors that will be launched into Walmart stores in May of 2017. At The Frozen Bean, we believe nobody should have to settle for mediocre coffee. Keep an eye out for additional new releases this month. First we are releasing a total of 4 new flavors including Chocolate Hazelnut Latte, Vanilla Bean Latte, Caramel Macchiato, and Spiced Mocha. Different from our single serves, these flavors will be available in 21 oz cans that each make 20 servings. This not only gives you options when it comes to taste, but you also have the choice to make it hot or cold. Best of all, these drinks can be made in 3 easy steps. Simply add 3 tbsp of Frozen Bean mix into a mug, 6 fl oz of hot water, and stir until dissolved. The 21 oz Frozen Bean canisters will be available in May at Walmart stores for $4.98.
