BLONDIES

If you’re anything like me you’re probably wondering what is a blondie? It’s basically a brownie but without the cocoa powder. Instead, it’s a vanilla based bar that only uses brown sugar.

Only using brown sugar in blondie bars makes them chewy, gives them that crispy crust (crispy in a good way), and makes them soft and dense.

It’s like a chocolate chip cookie but 1,000x better 🙂 If that’s even possible to get better than a chocolate chip cookie…

I’ll be totally honest and say that these were gone in 1 day at my house. My kids (and myself) were crazy for these blondies. 

They bake up in a 9×13 baking pan and they are thick, chewy, and buttery cookie bars. The edge pieces are a bit crispy and the middle pieces are so soft and chewy.

I normally don’t like edge pieces of bars but these were an exception. They were my favorite!

I love using the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in these bars because then there is more chocolate spread through out the bar.

You can use regular semi-sweet chocolate chips if that’s what you have. But try the mini ones, I love them and always have to buy a couple bags of them when I go grocery shopping.

MY TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE

  • I always use parchment paper to line the pan with. It makes cutting and taking the bars out of the pan so easy. Once they’re cooled you just lift them out with the overhang of the parchment paper and cut. 
  • To help parchment paper stay in place when I use it. I lightly spray the pan with cooking spray and then lay the parchment paper down on it. I also buy the box of precut parchment squares which fit perfectly in a 9×13 baking dish. 
  • DO NOT use the piping hot melted butter. Instead let it cool slightly. A tip for this : place the butter in a microwave-safe dish and microwave for about 35-40 seconds. Part of the butter will be melted while the other part will be in a soft butter stick form. Take a fork and mix the butter until it’s all nice and smooth. This way you’re not melting it all the way and getting the butter piping hot. If you do it this way you can add it into the dough right away.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted & cooled slightly
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper. The cooking spray will help the parchment paper stay in place. Or, just use cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir with a whisk to break up clumps
  3. In a bowl, or bowl of a stand mixer, combine melted and slightly cooled butter and brown sugar. Blend together until combined.
  4. Add in 1 egg and then blend. Add the other egg and vanilla extract and blend together until combined.
  5. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until combined and no flour pockets remain in the batter. Add the miniature chocolate chips, reserving some for sprinkling on top if wanted. Stir to combine. 

  6. Dump batter into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the reserved mini chocolate chips over top and gently press down. 

  7. Bake for 24-26 minutes. The edges will be a light golden brown and be "wrinkly" and the middle will look pale. Let cool completely.
  8. These blondies need about an hour to cool completely. Don't try to rush it or else they will not cut well at all. 

Recipe Notes

Mine are perfectly cooked at 25 minutes exactly. The edges will be a light golden brown and look "wrinkly". The middle will still be pale and look underdone but that's what you want.

 

To help keep the parchment paper in place in the pan, spray the pan first with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper. Be sure and leave a light overhang so you can easily lift the bars out to cut.

 

To help the butter be slightly cooled, simply melt the butter in the microwave until it's only half melted, about 40-45 seconds. Use a fork to stir together and that should finish melting the butter. You'll be left with slightly cooled melted butter that can be used right away.

    February 18, 2018 at 12:01 am Not sure why, but mine came out cakey and dry :( The only thing I changed was substituting margarine instead of butter so that it would be dairy-free. Definitely didn't come out like any of the other reviews!

      February 19, 2018 at 4:00 pm Using margarine instead of butter is a huge change! The reason they did not come out well is because you used Margarine. Margarine does not work in this recipe which is why the recipe calls for butter. Sorry your version did not work out. Thanks for visiting.

      March 2, 2018 at 9:05 pm If they came out cakey and dry then it sounds like they were overbaked. My trick with bars is that you should never pull out a pan of bars from the oven that looks like they're done. As they cool, they always cook more and come together. Sounds yummy with ice cream!

    February 28, 2018 at 8:45 am Quick question, do you use salted butter or unsalted butter? I know that can make a difference in baking. They look delicious and I’m wanting to try them this week! Thank you!

      March 2, 2018 at 8:49 pm I always use salted butter for everything. I find that using unsalted butter does not provide a lot of flavor to baked goods. If you do use unsalted you usually need to add a bit more salt. Enjoy!

    March 11, 2018 at 5:42 pm I saw a couple people had issue making these dairy free. I made these gluten and dairy free and wanted to share! I substituted the flour with Pillsbury gluten free flour and used a banana and 2 tbsp of earth balance dairy free butter in place of the butter. I also used the Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They do have a small hint of banana flavor but they turned out delicious! Thank you for the recipe!!

    August 7, 2018 at 2:56 pm OMGosh these are by far the best cookie bar. This recipe has more butter than the others I've seen but it's what makes them so good. I didn't add the extra 2 tbsp of flour, added nuts and maybe because of the elevation of 5000' I needed to cook them an extra 10 minutes. I love the crispy end pieces and soft centers. Thanks for sharing!

    January 23, 2019 at 7:10 am If I wanted to make these in a 13x18x1 pan would I have to double? Or how would I change the baking time? Thank you

      February 4, 2019 at 3:31 pm Doubling it should work just fine. I would just use a cookie sheet (roughly 12" x 18"). You could also just make the double recipe and then use 2 9x13 pans, and divide the dough between the two pans. If you use the larger cookie sheet, I would maybe set the timer for the recommended time and then check from there.
