What do these two brunettes do when they want to have fun like blondes?

Whip up a batch of these incredible blondies, chewy golden bars teeming with chocolate chunks.


2 cups flour
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups semisweet or milk chocolate chunks


1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 13×9-inch baking pan with non- stick cooking spray. Dust with a few pinches of flour, shaking out excess.

2) In a small bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda.

3) In an electric mixer, cream together brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla, adding eggs one at a time until combined. Add flour mixture and chocolate chunks to the mixer, mixing on low speed just until the flour disappears.

4) Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 20 minutes before removing from pan.

Yield: 20-24 bars
