To Make Blondies


     Hey there! I've got a delicious, easy, mid-week dessert for you today. I like to make blondies during the week because they are very simple to whip up, and don't require a ton of ingredients. Blondies are essentially a cross between a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie. The flavor of cookies combine with the chewy texture of brownies, and voila! You've got a very tasty situation on your hands. It's kind of the best of both worlds, perfect for when you want something a little chocolatey but also rich.

      I ended up making these after a failed brownie attempt that involved a lack of eggs and and excess of oil. Substitution is always tricky, and that's all I'll say on that subject. These were a god send though, and were gone within the next couple of days. See why and check out the recipe below!

Ingredients: yields four ramekins of blondies

- 1/2 cup of butter, melted

- 1 cup of flour

- 1 cup of packed brown sugar

- 1 egg

- 1 tsp. of vanilla

- 1/2 tsp. of baking powder

- a pinch of salt

- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips


Step one - Preheat oven to 350, and spray or butter your ramekins.

Step two - Mix together your butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Then, add your flour, baking powder, and salt. Last, add in your chocolate chips.

Step four - Scoop batter into ramekins, filling them just past halfway.

Step five - Bake for 20-25 minutes and enjoy!
