"What's a brownie without chocolate? A blondie, of course! Make it your own by adding your choice of dried fruits, nuts, and yes, even chocolate!"

packed light brown sugar
I was a little worried about this recipe because there were so many conflicting reviews. I made them exactly as the recipe called (except I used regular butter instead of unsalted, I like the extra bit of saltiness if it is noticable at all!) I added about 1 1/2 cups of mini chocolate chips. I got impatient and stirred them into the warm butter-sugar mixture and got a little marbling. They came out PERFECT! My fussy family could not get enough and gobbled them up. I noticed that by watching them very, very closely and taking them out the moment they were done, I completely avoided the hard, inedible edges that usually accompany brownie type bars. I am making these again!! This time with nuts and chocolate. Mmmm...heaven!
Waaaaaay too greasy. I was looking for the kind of blondies that the old ladies used to bring to covered dish suppers at my grandmother's church, and this isn't it. Instead of a brownie-like consistency, these are very dense and heavy. I followed the recipe exactly (I hate it when people here give negative reviews and they've made changes to the recipe!) and although I questioned using THREE STICKS of butter in this recipe, I still did that...and now I wish I'd left one of them out. Not your grandmother's blondie at all! Sorry Pam, but I won't make these again.
Oh man, so delicious! As someone who doesn't really care for chocolate it might come as a suprise that I've never actually had a Blondie. I made 1/3 of the recipe in a 9x9 square pan and used dark brown sugar instead of light. They are super chewy, almost caramel-y in flavor and really satisfy the sweet tooth. :)
these are SOO good! i added half a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. they are great!
This recipe makes a wonderful cake if you accidentally double the eggs when you're making it. (too many assistants in the kitchen)
Recipe has too much sugar, and shortening
I was torn on to give this 3 stars or 2. This is not all THAT great. Nothing to be excited about. They were OK and I really don't care for them. What really made me give this rating was the hardness. It took me a long time to get onepiece out of the pan.
These blondies are really great. I made them almost exactly as this recipe called except I made a smaller batch and used Dark Brown Sugar (didn't have light). They are great. Very moist, buttery and delicious! I have no idea what all of these bad reviews are about. It is possible that the directions are a little hard-to-follow.
