TIPS FOR MAKING CHOCOLATE CHIP BLONDIES

  • Prep time: To start the Blondie recipe, preheat the oven and coat your 8×10 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. If you don’t have cooking spray grease it lightly with butter. 
  • Wet ingredients: Add the butter and brown sugar to your stand mixer. Set the mixer to medium speed and cream for 1 minute until the butter is nice and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture. Turn on the mixer again until it’s combined and creamy. 
  • Dry ingredients: Add the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt to the other ingredients. Cover the mixing bowl with a kitchen towel and turn it on low speed so that the flour mixture doesn’t get everywhere. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. Then stir in the chocolate chips to finish the blondie batter.
  • Baking time: Pour the batter into your prepared baking pan. Use a rubber spatula to get all the batter out and spread it evenly over the pan. Bake for 30 minutes until it’s golden brown with slightly crisp edges. Use a toothpick to make sure it’s cooked through the center. Let them cool down before you slice them into squares.

VARIATIONS ON CHOCOLATE CHIP BLONDIES

  • Chocolate chips: You can try out different kinds of chocolate in the recipe instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Try out using milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate chips. You can also exchange chocolate chips for larger chocolate chunks. Or, change up the flavor more using butterscotch chips, toffee, or peanut butter chips. 
  • Chocolate Chip Pecan Blondies: For some extra crunch mix in chopped pecans at the same time you add the chocolate chips. You could also try other nuts like walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, or peanuts. 
  • Oatmeal Blondies: To add in some extra chewy texture and fiber to the Chocolate Chip Blondies mix 1 cup of old-fashioned oats into the batter. 
  • Add-ins: For more mix-ins try broken pretzels, shredded coconut, raisins, or M&Ms. You can also add a little salt over the top using sea salt or large-grained kosher salt.
