recipe: chocolate chunk blondie’s

Jun 14

 

oh my!
leave it to the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, to create this amazing blondie recipe. this is so good it’s bad.
Ina is one of my cooking idols. each and every season i watch her shows and want to make (almost) every recipe she shares. my favorite thing about her cooking is how simple and delicious it is. each dish is something i know i can make – and not be intimidated to try. her kitchen and home are amazing too!this recipe was on one of her shows last fall and realized i had everything in my pantry/fridge to create this dessert. yea, i know – that miracle alone is asking for me to at least make them…just try them to see if they were really as good as Ina said they were.

she was correct.
since the recipe is easy and most items are in house on any given week, we make these a lot…

the blondie batter is light and creamy…

then you send it over the top by adding in all of those chocolate chunks…

Ina says “only bake them for 30 minutes and not a minute longer”…and she’s right. perfection!…

she suggests an 8 x 12 x 2 size pan but i have made these in a 13 x 9 x 2 and an 8″ square and the blondies turned out just as well.
this recipe is never leaving our family recipe binder – it’s a keeper!
here is a link to Ina’s recipe for downloading. enjoy!

    • hi!

      yes! husband's love these things. my husband actually gets a little upset with me when i make them because he's trying to watch his waistline….and he can't resist them when they are around 🙂 so they make a great father's day treat!!! lol!

    These sound absolutely delicious, especially with the chunks of chocolate! What a great dessert idea, thanks for sharing this! Sounds so yummy!

    • hi maria,

      they ARE delicious. a little too much and i had better be careful not to make them too much this summer or my bathing suit won't fit anymore – haha! 🙂

      thank you,
      samantha
