Classic Chocolate Chip Blondies

No mixer required! Chewy, buttery, perfect blondies with a subtle toffee flavor and studded with milk chocolate chips.

These milk chocolate chip blondies are deliciously chewy with a rich toffee flavor.

I realized this week that I don’t have a single classic blondie recipe on this site! I have these Fluffernutter Blondies and Blondie Batter Dip and these Triple Decker Bars that have a blondie layer. But nothing that is just so classically buttery, and brown sugary with a fudgy center and crinkly top as all good blondies should be.

This recipe checks all of that and more off the Blondies Must Have list!

So what’s the difference between a blondie and a cookie bar? Good question.

I think the biggest difference between the two is the buttery toffee taste that blondies should have. This is achieved by melting or browning the butter (compared to softened butter in cookie bars) and by using only brown sugar (compared to also using granulated sugar in cookie bars).

Blondies should also be fudgy in the middle with crinkly tops, like a batch of brownies.

I added lots of big milk chocolate chips to this batch, because… I like chocolate chips. 😋

But the beauty of blondies is that there are so many yummy ways to customize them! Add candy bars or M&Ms or peanut butter chips or cranberries or nuts. Add a chocolate drizzle or sprinkles or a coat of cinnamon sugar.

So.many.ways to eat blondies. 😍

No matter what you add, promise me you’ll try this recipe! Seriously. It’s the best. THEE best! And I know you are going to love it as much as I did.

Enjoy:)
