Ingredients

For the Lemon Blueberry Bliss Bars

  • 2 Sticks Unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar ,packed
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Zest from one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Cups All purpose flour
  • 1 Cup White chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup Dried blueberries

For the Lemon Cream Cheese Icing

  • 1 ,8 ounce package Cream Cheese ,softened
  • 1 1/2 Cups Confectioner Sugar
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1/2 Cup Dried blueberries
  • 3 Ounces Melted white chocolate

Instructions

For the Lemon Blueberry Bliss Bars

  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Line a 13x9 pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil . (* Leave enough foil or parchment hanging over edge to help you lift blondies out of the pan once they are cooked.)
  • In a medium bowl mix together, flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream melted butter and brown sugar. 
  • Add eggs one at a time and mix.
  • Mix in Lemon juice, vanilla and lemon zest. 
  • Add dry ingredients in and mix to incorporate.
  • Add dried blueberries and white chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Spread mixture in your prepared pan evenly.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 18-22 minutes. The top of your bars should be lightly browned. 
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely before adding cream cheese icing.

For the Lemon Cream Cheese Icing

  • In a large bowl mix softened cream cheese with a hand mixer on high speed until creamed. Add confectioner sugar and mix on low speed until incorporated then increase to high speed and mix until smooth.
  • Add vanilla and Lemon juice and blend well. 
  • Lift your cooled blondies out of the pan and place on a large cutting board. Spread icing over top of blondies then cut into triangles.
  • Sprinkle dried blueberries over bars and then drizzle with melted white chocolate. 
  • **To melt chocolate place white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high in 10 second increments stirring between each. Will probably be ready after about 3 times in the microwave. Once they begin to melt they should get smooth as you stir them. Careful not to over heat them or they will seize up. 
  • ** I like to place melted chocolate in a small zip lock baggie. Cut a very small part of the corner of the baggie off to make a small hole to squeeze melted chocolate out of.
  • Bars should be stored in the fridge until ready to serve because of the cream cheese icing. 

Notes

**Amount of bars you get depend on how large you want to cut them.
