Blondes do have more fun :)
I have been on a big baking kick lately. Already this week I have made chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon coffee cake. I was trying to think of something new I could make so I decided to go with the traditionalblondie. I made a peanut butter blondie once and it was good, but I wanted a plain one. I added chocolate chips and funny enough it tasted a lot like a giant chocolate chip cookies. It was just a bit gooey-er inside. The texture was a lot like a brownie. All in all I am pleased! Of course I served them a la mode with some chocolate sauce :)

Additional mix-ins of your choice (chocolate chips, candies, nuts, etc.)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x8 baking pan.
2. In a large bowl combine melted butter and brown sugar, beat until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix until combined. Fold in any additional mix-ins and pour into baking pan - spread evenly. (I just used my standing mixer)
