Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars

Chocolate Chip Blondies

Are Blondies more fun?

Or taste better, for that fact?

I was looking through one of my cookbooks, looking for something quick and easy to make. I would be entertaining and I needed something to feed plenty of mouths. This fit the bill.

Quick, easy, and tasty.

I was nervous that maybe they would be dry. I explained to people that it was like a large chocolate chip cookie cut into bars.

Moist in the inside, not too dry or crumbly on the outside. Went really well with coffee.

Considering they were eaten up in no time, I'd say they were a hit.

I guess blondies are more fun :)
