Blonde Brownies 

This is one of my most cherished things I own. Handwritten by my Grammy, this recipe book has a collection of her favorite recipes. It’s full of love, patience, and lots of butter.

Today, we were supposed to be bringing dessert to a bbq at a friend’s house in celebration of Memorial Day. In preparation,  I decided on Blonde Brownies- a quick, easy recipe that is always a big hit with everyone.  This is a recipe that my Grammy made A LOT and she got from a dear family friend, Marty Henkes.

Plus, you likely will have everything you need in your pantry or fridge.

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 2/3 Cup Butter
  • 1 small pckg Chocolate Chips (or enough to cover the batter)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray jelly roll pan.

Cream sugar and butter. Add the other ingredients except flour and chocolate chips.  Mix well. Add flour and mix.

Spread batter into the pan. (It will be thick so you may have to work to get it spread out.) It’s ok if it doesn’t completely touch the edges of the pan because it will expand while baking. Cover with chocolate chips.  Bake 20-25 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting into bars.

You can use more chocolate chips than I did but I like to taste the cookie part of the brownies more than the chocolate part.

They are so yummy you’ll have trouble not eating the whole pan. Luckily they are super-easy so you can just make more!
