I’ve made these amazing blondies about a gazillion times (recipe from the stellar Smitten Kitchen). Seriously, 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. I can’t say which is my favorite combo – they’re all so delicious. You MUST try this one out. Aren’t I bossy?
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!
