Chocolate Chip Blondies

It is February 1st. Hallelujah, January is over. I blogged one time in January, and it was in that post that I said we should all embrace the first month of the year and make it our own. Well goodness gracious, I could not be happier January is over. January was full of a lot of up and downs. A lot of up and downs. Between my social circle, we could have had a soap opera.

When life gives you lemons... well, damn, we're sick of lemonade. When it rains it pours...well, my umbrella is wearing thin.So here is to a new month and a new start for this year. I am leaving January behind me and I am moving forward. And I am eating blondies.

Chocolate Chip Blondies
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 chocolate chips (white, milk or butterscotch works too)
1/3 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips (white, milk or butterscotch works too)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Measure 1 cup of sifted flour. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sift again. Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Mix well and set aside.
2. Melt 1/3 cup butter. Add 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar and mix well. Cool slightly. Add beaten egg  and vanilla. Blend well. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing well.
3. Spread in 9 x 9 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle 2/3 chocolate chips on top and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

I've missed you and am sorry that it's been such a tough month. Yes, February WILL be better! But adding chocolate to blondies? My heart breaks.

I never knew adding chocolate was such a faux pas!

Next time I will be more diligent. Perhaps this recipe should be renamed to "Blonde Brownies?"

Thanks for staying loyal readers!
