A blonde makes a blondie.

I love a brownie. Especially the fudgey, slightly undercooked ones. But, spoiler alert, I use boxed brownie mix…. always. And quite frankly, I can’t tell the difference in a homemade brownie and a $3 boxed mix. BUT a decent boxed blondie mix isn’t so easy to come by. So I’ve had to find a homemade version that suits. Once again browned butter makes this easy treat shine. They’re the perfect mix up to your typical chocolate chip cookie or brownie night.

Browned Butter Blondie


  • 1 and 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 3/4 Granulated Sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 3/4 t Sea Salt
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • 2 and 3/4 cup AP flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350! Line and grease a 9×13 pan.

In a small sauce pan brown 1 cup of the butter. (Remember melt, foam, brown – wait for the nutty smell!). Put the remaining 1/4 cup butter in your mixing bowl. Add the browned butter and begin to mix. This cold butter with help temper the heat from the hot browned butter!

Once all the butter has melted, add the sugars, vanilla and salt. Mix until combined. Add the eggs + yolks and blend. Toss in the baking soda and add the flour.  (I recommend adding the flour 1 cup at a time and scaring down the sides.)

Fold in the chocolate chips! Pour into the greased dish and pop into the oven for 30 minutes.
