Back of Have More Fun With Blondies Not too long ago, I organized a trip to Hog Island Oyster Farm, where I enjoyed an idyllic picnic with seven dear friends. I had a good idea of what dishes to bring, but I was hung up on dessert, until a co-worker suggested blondies. "They're so much better than brownies!" she exclaimed. I heeded her advice and found a crowd-pleasing blondie recipe that has something for everyone: a sweet, chewy center, chunks of chocolate chips, and crunchy almond slivers scattered on top. They were so comforting that I couldn't stop eating them — so I had to give the rest away! Read on for the perfect portable dessert. Chocolate Chunk Blondies From Better Homes and Gardens Ingredients2/3 cup butter 2 cups packed brown sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 cup chopped semisweet or white baking chocolate (I used semisweet chips) 3/4 cup sliced almonds or chopped pecans Directions Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a medium saucepan heat and stir butter and brown sugar over medium heat until smooth. Cool slightly. Stir in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in chopped chocolate. Spread batter evenly in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars while warm. To store, cover pan and store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Makes 36 bars.

But really, how could one go wrong with any type of chocolate?! Kate14909563 7 years I love blondies! I am always looking for new recipes. I actually just made a batch from the Toll House recipe last weekend, so delicious! syako 7 years Did you use white chocolate chips or just chocolate chips? :) These look delicious, and seeing as I have most ingredients on hand, I might be making these this weekend. miamixo 7 years Those look really yummy and I think I might have to make blondie brownies now. The only time I've had em was at Sea World and they were cakey cardboard, not so good.
