This recipe for Chocolate Chip Blondies is unbelievably delicious! They are chewy, moist and delicious – the perfect cross between a cookie and a brownie!
These Blondies have the fudgy texture of a brownie and the buttery, sweet, vanilla flavor of chocolate chip cookies making them a treat that’s sheer perfection.
My Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is probably the one recipe I’m most proud of. They are loved (and craved) by anyone I have ever made them for.
I get more emails on those cookies than any other recipe. So when I saw an episode of the Barefoot Contessa where she was making both cookies and Blondies from the same chocolate chip cookie dough, I knew I had to do it with my recipe!
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I tried it because they are to die for and this is now my go-to gift recipe. They are so quick and easy to make! I make huge batches at Christmas time and give them out as gifts to anyone from neighbors to teachers at my son’s school.
They are always a big hit and I’m often asked to make them when I have friends coming to visit.
I’ve also used this recipe as a base for my Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Blondies (pictured below). If you haven’t seen them – they are something that can’t be missed! They are by far the most popular recipe on this site.
To make the blondies, I start with creaming the butter and sugar together, followed by adding the dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread them into an 8×12″, pan and bake for 25-35 minutes.
I eat them warm, but they are just as good fully cooled!
- Blondies can be stored in an airtight container for three days (although I’ve never had them last that long).
- I’m often asked if Blondies can be frozen. I’m sure they could be, but my advice is to freeze the dough, defrost it and then bake them. My opinion is that freshly baked is always best.
- The key to making blondies chewy and fudgy is to not overcook them. I bake them 25 minutes and to check if they’re perfectly baked, I gently shake the pan. If they giggle, put them back in the oven for five minutes at a time until just set (they can still have a very slight giggle). Keeping them from being over baked keeps the blondies perfectly moist.
