How To Make Blondies

Updated on February 15, 2012


I can hear you now, "What the heck are blondies?". Well, they are like brownies and are delicious, contain no chocolate, and taste like butterscotch.

Years ago, there used to be a blondies mix that could be bought in stores. I'm not sure of the brand, but they were so good! I haven't seen them for years, so I've been searching online for something that will do.

After 5 or 6 trials, I think I've found the taste I'm looking for. These taste like butterscotch, even though you don't have to put butterscotch chips in it if you don't want to. I used white chips in this batch and they are delicious! You could also add nuts or whatever you'd like. Well, within reason! Only add 1/2 cup of nuts, chips, etc.

Without further ado, here's my recipe for what I like to call "Blondies Not Brownies!"
