Chocolate Chip Blondies

I recently picked up some German chocolate to make a cake with, and with a sale at the grocery ended up grabbing another box as well--though this time it was white chocolate.  I was excited at the opportunity to bake with it especially since I have enjoyed white chocolate chip cookies and other things. I recalled the most amazing brownie alternative a few years back, a blondie. I've made Frosted Brownies, Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies and even S'mores Brownies before, but hadn't ventured out to blondies just yet.  I'd had them only once but once I thought about them, I knew that was the recipe I needed to conquer next.


I scoured through some recipes until finally coming across a Kraft version that was perfect (many recipes called for not only baker's chocolate, but white chocolate chips as well which I did not have)
Now I was a tiny bit short on the amount of white chocolate for this recipe, as it called for 1 and 1/2 boxes of chocolate and I only had one. So I decided to toss in some chocolate chips to ensure the chocolate level was perfect.

I started off by microwaving the white chocolate and butter in a small bowl. Once the chocolate had melted, I stirred the two together.


Next, I added in the sugar, then the eggs, and finally stirred in the flour, baking powder, and salt. To get that extra chocolaty flavor, I also mixed in about 1 cup of milk chocolate chips.


The recipe suggested lining the baking pan with tin foil and spraying nonstick cooking spray, which I haven't tried before, so I gave it a shot. I poured the batter into the pan and got that bad boy in the oven.


The final product was ready after 30 minutes in the oven and by that time, I was ready to dive in.


These were amazing! I was so happy at how great these turned out. Even with a little less white chocolate in the batter than original called for, these turned out cakey and delicious. They ended up slightly browner in color than typical because I used the brown sugar, but that was a worthy trade-off for the flavor.  I've already made up my mind that next time, I'm tossing in some m&m's as that would just up the awesome factor. I took a handful of these to work and gave some to a few friends and everyone who tried them loved them!
