It’s been awhile since I’ve made blondies, and boy are they good! The recipe comes from my ancient copy of Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook (you know, the red and white checked one). This is the first time (out of many) that I actually followed the directions where it says to melt the brown sugar and butter together in a saucepan. In the past I just used room temperature butter and whipped everything together. I definitely recommend following the recipe and taking the time to melt the two on your stove top. It makes the bars much softer and chewy. However, I didn’t let the mixture cool for long enough, so when I added the chocolate and butterscotch chips, they completely melted into the batter. The blondies still taste really good, but I prefer having the texture of the chips inside. I added some extra chips on top of the bars, but it’s not quite the same.

Just follow the recipe and you’ll be good to go!


2 C packed brown sugar

2/3 C butter

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

2 C flour

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp baking soda

½ C semisweet chocolate chips (or 1 C if not using butterscotch chips)

½ C butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350. In a saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together until sugar is completely dissolved. LET IT COOL before you continue with the rest of the ingredients.

Add eggs one at a time to the brown sugar and butter and stir. Mix in the vanilla, flour, baking powder, baking soda and chips.

Spread the batter in a greased baking pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack, then cut into bars while they’re still warm.
