Chocolate Chip Blondie Tips

What is a blondie?

Blondies are very similar to brownies but they typically contain brown sugar and vanilla instead of the cocoa that brownie recipes contain. You can use either light or dark brown sugar in this blondie recipe, but dark brown sugar will give you the boldest flavor.

Why do my blondies sink in the middle?

Blondies need a lot of air incorporated into the batter, and this can take longer to achieve because of the brown sugar. Whisk the batter until it's very pale, fluffy and thick, and be patient—rushing this step will lead to gooey blondies. We also recommend baking blondies in a metal pan instead of a glass one to allow them to cook faster.

How do you know when blondies are done cooking?

Like most baked goods, you can test blondies for doneness by inserting a cake tester or toothpick into them. If it comes out clean, the blondies are ready. Try topping your blondies with chocolate or mint-chip ice cream; drizzling them with fudge sauce; or garnishing them with whipped cream, chopped nuts, cherries or chocolate kisses.
