Her name is Lucy. She enjoys Play Doh, sunglasses, and tacos. Combs? Not so much.
But recently another blond has come into my life.
And these gooey peanut butter chocolate chip blondies are just as sweet as my walking (read: running), talking (read: broken record), taco-eating tot. The difference is, these you can have for yourself. Lucy is all mine.
To make them for yourself, gather some flour and salt, an egg, one stick of butter, vanilla extract, brown sugar, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.
Begin by melting the butter in a large bowl. Short bursts in the microwave work just fine.
Once the butter has cooled slightly (too warm and it will cook the egg—no good), add the egg, the vanilla…
…and the brown sugar. Mix until smooth.
Stir in the flour and salt…
…and fold in the chips.
Spread into a 9×9″ pan that’s been greased with butter or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes, until slightly browned around the edges but still pale in the center. Let cool completely before slicing (I know, I know. But trust me).
Can a blondie be fudgy? Because that’s exactly the word to describe these gooey, peanut-buttery, chocolately treats that are ready in no time. You must have this blondie in your life. Plus, they require a lot less cleanup than my towheaded toddler.
