Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 1 dozen bars


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup brown sugar (light or dark), packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped milk chocolate chunks
  • Optional: sea salt, for sprinkling on bars


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In large bowl, add melted butter and brown sugar. Stir until mixed and then add egg and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously until completely smooth.
  3. Add flour and beat until batter is completely smooth and well combined. Stir until the batter pulls away from the bowl; add dark and milk chocolate chunks. Mix until just combined – do not over mix.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes. A toothpick when inserted into the center of bars should come out mostly clean. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt, if desired. Allow blondies to cool completely before slicing into squares.
