Blondies have more fun!!

{Posted on November 13, 2011}

These Blondies, with LOTS of chocolate chunks (due to my addiction), are scrumptious! I’m also quite fond of walnuts, feel free to omit but you’re gonna miss the added nutty crunch…I’m just sayin’.

Go ahead, make these this week and be a hero in your office, to your kiddos or make them just for you. You deserve it!

Chocolate Chunk Blondies

2 sticks of unsalted butter, at room temp.

1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 large eggs, at room temp

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

1 1/2 pounds of chocolate chunks, such as Nestle’s or better yet, Ghiradelli’s!!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Flour and grease a 9×13 baking pan.

With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars on high for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. On low speed now add the vanilla and eggs one at a time.

In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Still on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until combined. With a spatula, fold in the walnuts and the chocolate.

Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, do NOT over bake. The blondies will seem slightly undercooked when you test with a toothpick, but that’s what you’re looking for!

Cool completely and cut into bars. Y-U-M!!
