There’s an age old debate between blondes and brunettes and for the majority of my life I have resided in the blonde camp. There’s definitely some very beautiful and attractive looking brownies, as I like to call them. On both sides you’ll find some that are rich, a little nutty, dry humored, but almost always sweet. It’s a tough choice and they both deserve our respect and admiration.
I introduced you to a brownie a few months ago so I’d like to introduce you to this blondie today. Check the original site where I found her for some better looking photos. I tend to cook at night under bad lighting so I apologize for my pictures. My photographer had the night off.
These were super simple to make and turned out great, which is why they call this a “No-Fail” recipe. The best part is making the caramel which is simply butter + dark brown sugar. You can’t go wrong when you start with that.
Once melted together you add in the egg, vanilla extract, and flour.
Here’s where you get to have some fun. Each blondie and brownie out there has their own personality, that one thing that makes them stand out from the crowd. I like to call it the special ingredient. I consider myself a traditional kind of guy so I chose the tried and true chocolate chips. Please don’t ruin yours by choosing nuts. Just say No.
A quick 25 minutes in the oven and you’re left with a beautiful, soft, chewy, blondie that’s ready to enjoy. Yes, I said that.
Hope you enjoy them!
