Double Chocolate Chunk Blondies

Double Chocolate Chunk Blondies are packed with plenty of brown sugar and two kinds of chocolate. A fantastic quick-and-easy dessert! - Bake or Break
As much as I love a good brownie, there’s something about blondies that I find equally as irresistible. If I had to guess, it’s the abundance of brown sugar, which is one of my favorite baking ingredients and flavors. Also, they’re a bit like a big, soft, dense chocolate chip cookie, but without the labor of scooping individual cookies.

I’ve made lots of different blondies over the years with lots of flavor combinations and delicious twists. But sometimes I crave the simplicity of blondies loaded with brown sugar and chocolate chips.

Quinn generally prefers milk chocolate, while I tend to reach for dark chocolate. If yours is also a chocolate house divided, then these blondies offer a simple solution by having both dark and milk chocolate mixed into the batter.

For a little flavor interest, I like to add just a bit of cinnamon to the batter. That little hint of cinnamon is a perfect complement to all that brown sugar-y, chocolate-y goodness.

Not only do these blondies taste amazing, they’re also one of the quickest, easiest things you can bake. Whether you’re new to baking or have years of experience, you can appreciate that, right? And if you have a reasonably stocked baking pantry, you’ll likely have everything you need to whip up a pan of them whenever the craving strikes.

Quick and easy Double Chocolate Chunk Blondies are packed with plenty of brown sugar and two kinds of chocolate.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks or chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chunks or chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9″x 13″x 2″ baking pan.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Gradually add the flour, mixing just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks.

Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until the bars are golden brown and a pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Place the pan on a wire rack and allow the bars to cool before cutting.

Notes:

*The hint of cinnamon adds a nice bit of flavor, but you may omit it if you like.
