Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving edges of foil hanging over 2 sides of pan for easy removal later.
  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook 8 to 11 minutes or until butter is light golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3 In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, brown sugar, vanilla, 2 eggs and cooled brown butter. Spread in pan.
  • 4 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted 1 inch in center of pan comes out almost clean. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips; let stand 5 minutes. Spread evenly over bars.
  • 5 Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, mix granulated sugar and water. Microwave uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until sugar is dissolved.
  • 6 In large bowl, place sweetened coconut and unsweetened coconut. Pour sugar mixture over coconut; beat with electric mixer on low speed until well mixed. Add cream cheese and egg white; beat on low speed until blended. Spoon and gently press macaroon mixture onto partially baked blondie layer.
  • 7 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely before cutting, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows. Store at room temperature, lightly covered, up to 1 week.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips
