If you aren’t familiar with blondies, these may just be your new favorite treat. It’s like a brownie, but instead of chocolate, you’ve got brown sugar and buttery goodness. Add some chocolate chips, and you’ve got the perfect combination of simply sweet and chocolate!

Add chocolate and white chocolate chips and beat on low until mixed well.

Helpful tip:  You can use only white chocolate chips if you want more authentic blondies. I make these this way sometimes and add a Blondie Butter Sauce that’s to die for when served warm. My grandmother used to add 1 cup of chopped nuts as well. You can also use all chocolate chips, but your bars will be more chocolate than blondie… not that I’m saying that’s a bad thing.

Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. They will fall slightly in the middle.

Enjoy!

Side notes:  This personalized pan is my favorite! It cooks evenly, is easy to clean, and comes with its own heat safe metal lid. I got it as a wedding present, which I thought was an awesome idea. You can get one here.
Also, the sweatshirt I’m wearing in this picture is amazing. My sweet husband thought of me when he saw it and knew I had to have it. Perhaps I say this too much?
