I’ve made these blondies a gazillion times (recipe from Smitten Kitchen). They’re so easy and really quick to make, that whatever the occasion they seem perfect. This time, I added in scotch and chocolate chips, but in the past I’ve made them with variations like peanut butter chipits, toasted walnuts, skor bits, white chocolate, and pecans, etc, etc. You’ve got to try these.
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips (or up to a cup of whatever you want!)
1/4 cup scotch (you can use bourbon or whiskey too, but make sure to add an extra tbsp of flour)
Butter an 8×8 pan. Mix melted butter with brown sugar — beat until smooth. Beat in egg and then vanilla. Add salt, stir in flour. Mix in any additions. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until set in the middle. Cool on rack before cutting. Enjoy.
