So I originally was going to make these to give to my neighbors the week before our housewarming party so that they didn’t hate us if/when we made a lot of noise. Unfortunately for them, I changed my mind after taking a bite of the blondies right after they got out of the oven and, instead, decided to keep them. My roommates were content with this decision.
This may be because I used a 13×9 pan and the batter was spread thin, but the blondies resembled a thick, giant chocolate chip cookie. The batter does rise a little in the oven, but not as much as I thought it would. Next time I might try baking it in a 9×9 pan to make the blondes thicker.
Definitely give this recipe a try! And I recommend popping them in the microwave for 10 seconds then topping it with vanilla ice cream 🙂
Chocolate Chip Blondies
adapted from AllRecipes.com
(makes about 32)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup butter, melted
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven at 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 baking dish.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Combine melted butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Add a third of the flour mixture and mix just until combined (don’t over-mix it). Repeat until all the flour has been added.
- Fold in chocolate chips. Spread batter into the greased pan. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
