Dark Chocolate Chip Blondies



Ingredients:
2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs, at room temperature
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt




Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour or spray with cooking spray with flour one 8 inch square baking pan. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix throughly, about 2-3 minutes. The batter will be rather thick. Scrape batter in pan. Bake 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle of the pan comes out almost clean. The blondie will set up as it cools. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes then remove from pan to continue to cool. Serve at room temperature or slightly above.


My thoughts:
A hint of dark chocolate really sets off the caramel-y flavor of these chewy blondies. I like how easy this recipe is to mix together, it makes it a perfect weeknight treat when you want some thing sweet but don't want a lot of hassle.
