  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush an 8x8-inch square baking pan with melted butter and line the pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides.
  • In a large bowl, whisk butter and sugars until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla until fully incorporated.
  • Add flour and salt and mix just until moistened (do not over mix). Fold in ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan and smooth top with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the top with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Set the pan on a wire rack and let cool completely. Using the parchment overhang, lift the blondies from the pan and transfer them to a cutting board. Cut into squares.



  • If you use salted butter, reduce the amount of salt added to the recipe.
  • Do not overmix the batter or the blondies may come out crumbly or tough and not as chewy as they should.
