Growing up, my mom would often make cookie bars. That was just easier when you had six kids to bake for–you can crank out a whole big pan and not have to bother scooping out individual cookies. We didn’t care either way if there were cookies or bars; we just loved that Mom baked us a treat that day!

And these blondies are the same way. Sure, you can take the time to make cookies, but why–when you can have warm blondies in 30 minutes. I made these in an 8×8″ pan but you can double the recipe for a larger quantity and make them in a 9×13″ pan instead.

These blondies start out with melted butter. And the nice thing is you can mix this batter by hand, so no stand mixer needed! Simply mix the melted butter and brown sugar together well, then add a few more ingredients and you’re done. When you’re mixing the butter and brown sugar, you’ll smell the “butterscotch” flavor, from which blondies get their name.

I added chopped-up salted milk chocolate to these. That just adds to the overall taste and texture. If you’re a chocolate fan (who isn’t?!), follow suit. You can pretty much add any kind of milk chocolate on top–chips or chopped up bars. If you have that fancy flaked salt, sprinkle some of that on top. I didn’t have any–hence the salted milk chocolate. 😉

Chopped Up Chocolate Pieces

When the blondies are almost done, take them out of the oven and add the chopped-up chocolate on top. Stick them back in the oven for a couple minutes to make the chocolate melty.

I highly recommend eating these bars warm…there’s nothing quite like a warm blondie, especially as the weather gets colder. Add a tall glass of milk, and you’re good to go!
