The texture of a brownie, the flavors of a chocolate chip cookie, the simplicity of a basic bar recipe, all of these things make this my go-to dessert on a regular basis.

I’ve made these blondies countless times and they are always a hit. One of my brothers requests them each time he visits us. The best part? This is a very easy dessert to throw together whether in advance or at the last minute.

I love to serve these when they are still warm from the oven and oozing melted chocolate.

    I modified the recipe slightly just because I was craving chocolate banana something. I used 8 tbsp of butter and added 1 mashed banana and a half cup of white chocolate chips instead of nuts. They turned out Amamzing!!!!! So good! The recipe was easy and this is the first recipe I ried for blondies.5 stars

    The recipe I copied from your email called for 1-1/2 cups of butter, 2 cups brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tbsp vanilla, 2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder, 1-1/4 cups choc chips, 3/4 cups pecans. I thought it was too much butter. I made them though, exactly as directed and they turned out brown on top and ok around the edges, but were really not edible due to being so greasy.

    The recipe I saw this time in my saved email showed only 10 tbs melted butter. The recipe I printed and used from your email on top says chocolate chip blondies – Barefeet in the kitchen.

    I made rhem for a dinner party tomorrow, so, I will make them again in the morning with the recipe using 10 tbsp melted butter. Do you know why there was such a mixup?
