Chocolate Chip Blondies
- Mixing bowls
- 8-inch square baking pan
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Toothpick (for testing the doneness of the blondies)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350°F(175°C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with butter or cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth.
- Add in the egg and vanilla extract, and whisk until well combined.
- Mix in the salt and flour until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
- Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it out with a spatula.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden and the center is set.
- Let the blondies cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
- Be sure to measure the ingredients carefully to ensure the best results.
- Do not overmix the batter as this can result in tough and dense blondies.
- If the top of the blondies are browning too quickly, cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil for the remainder of the baking time.
- Allow the blondies to cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving to prevent them from falling apart.
- For an even richer flavor, you can add a tablespoon or two of peanut butter to the batter.
- These blondies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. If you need to keep them longer, store them in the freezer for up to three months.
If you want to get creative with your chocolate chip blondies, here are a few variations to try out:
