I guess this sounds like a broken record…cold weather doesn’t REALLY mean chocolate. But doesn’t a little chocolate dessert seem to make the conditions outside a little more bearable? On this vein, we will move forward and introduce you to another yummy dish from my friends at Chebe Bread. This recipe is called “Blondie”. Now, I have been called this as well…and only my hairdresser knows if that is accurate! Enjoy this blondie and stay warm!

Blondie Bar Dessert Recipe

Blondie Bar Dessert Recipe

                   

Ingredients
1 Package Chebe Mix (add 1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar and 1 tsp. Baking Soda to Chebe Original Bread Mix)
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter (or non-dairy alternative), softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs ( or use egg replacer)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cup chocolate chunks, divided

 

Directions
Preheat oven to 350o F. Grease a 9 by 13 baking pan.                                                                            

Add brown sugar to softened butter and mix until combined. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract until combined. Add 1 package of Chebe All-Purpose Bread Mix and mix on low until just incorporated. Fold in 1 1/4 cups chocolate chunks and transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cups of chocolate chunks evenly on top of the mixture and press lightly with wax paper to set into the dough. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool completely. Cut into 2-inch squares.  Makes 24 bars.

If you are in the mood for cookies: Mix all of the chocolate chunks into the dough and bake on a cookie sheet for 20-22 minutes at 350o. Makes 2 dozen cookies. Be creative and modify the recipe by adding your favorite chopped nuts, toffee bits, etc. in place of the chocolate – just keep the quantity to about  2 cups.
