Chocolate Chunk Blondies
If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you probably know about my love for Ina Garten and her recipes. Because of this devotion, you can imagine my excitement when my mom gave me her newest cookbook, Foolproof, back in December. Although I’ve flipped through the book at least a dozen times since then, I had yet to try a recipe from the book until the past weekend.
I broke the seal on the new cookbook with Ina’s Chocolate Chunk Blondies. Before you make the assumption that these blondies are just a boring bar cookie, I want to assure you that there is nothing sleepy about them. For starters, the chocolate chunks kick everything up a few notches; and the careful instruction to not overcook means you end up with a treat that has a softness and moistness that can only be achieved with real butta’ and homemade baked goods. Since these Chocolate Chunk Blondies are dangerously good, they should be accompanied by a disclaimer: you will NOT be able to eat just one; you WILL need complete silence while you enjoy each and every chocolate-laden gooey bite; and you may experience separation anxiety when they’re gone.
If I were a betting woman, I’d put money on the fact that I’ll be making these again sometime very soon. But next time with a specific recipient in mind. If you wonder why, please reference the disclaimer above.
