I've made this recipe from Smitten Kitchen before. It's so easy that there is no reason not to make these fast yummy blondies for any occasion, special or not. It's one bowl, one measuring cup, and a whisk (well you need a teaspoon measure and a pan to cook them in) but that is nothing when considering to bake something. They come together in 5 minutes and you can add in whatever kind of chips, nuts or flavoring that you enjoy. That means that you could make these 5 different ways and have 5 different blondies to give out.
1 sick of butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
In a medium sized bowl melt the butter and whisk in the sugar, once combined add the vanilla and the egg. Stir until homogeneous. Slowly stir in the flour. Once all combined add in your chips, nuts, dried fruit or whatever else you would like to add.
Pour into a greased pan, and place in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for at least an hour before cutting. And serve or freeze.
My only recommendation would be not to add more than one and a half cups of the extras you put in. You do need some dough to keep these brownies and not candy.
Love them, a perfectly yummy and easy recipe to keep in your arsenal.
