Chocolate Chip Blondies


Chocolate Chip Blondies

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my last post. Who needs ice cream to drown my breakup woes when I have you guys, right? Nonetheless, chocolate and I have gotten pretty cozy the past week, which has resulted in an almost bare emergency drawer. With one chocolate bar left, I chopped it up and folded it into the buttery blondie dough.  Awesome choice if I do say so myself.

Chocolate Chip Blondies

This Christmas, thanks to my parents, I received three new cookbooks. One of them was “One Bowl Baking” by Yvonne Ruperti. It has chapter after chapter of recipes that only require one bowl. How great is that? Lately, I don’t have time to bake like I used to so this book was a breath of fresh air.  One bowl = little fuss. These blondies are buttery, fudgy in the center and bursting with chocolate goodness. Enjoy!

    Break-ups are the WORST, but without chocolate around they’re at least a little better. These blondies look pretty ideal and I love that they are one bowl only!

    I feel I may have been insensitive before: I for some reason was thinking the breakup to which you were referring was not new.

    My bad. Girl I am SO sorry and I am totally here for youuu! Breakups are no fun at all, esp. when they’re affected by that dreaded “being too young” nonsense. My brother got dumped recently because the girl feels like she’s too young to settle down…but then she also wants to be around him so now he hangs out with her and talks to her and is all confused and messed up and thinks he’s gonna win her back…*le sigh*

    ANYWAYYYYY blondies. cure all ailments. Esp. ones as tasty as these!

      No worries Kayle! It seems like I am going through the same thing as your brother. Maybe my ex and his ex should hook up and have a non-committed relationship. haha

      Kayle, “Too young to settle down” is a LIE! It is, in my opinion, just a way to get out of a relationship you’re not that into and not make the other person feel bad about themselves. It does tend to lead to residual hope as the breaker upper grows older. I’ve used that line on a guy before. Should have been brave enough to just say straight up that he wasn’t the guy for me. Lucky for both of us I left the country after the break up.

    One bowl baking is genius. I’m usually on the five bowls, three sets of measuring cups, and four spatulas plan…and it sucks come dishes time! These blondies are so classic and look so tasty!

    One bowl recipes are the best thing ever! Especially if they include chocolate and look as awesome as these bars. Oh My – I’m drooling over here! ;–)

    Oh my, I missed your last post (will be fixed soon)!

    These look perfect, though-nothing like a good, chewy blondie.
