Tuesdays with Dorie: Chewy, Chunky Blondies

This week's TWD recipe was Nicole of Cookies on Friday and she picked Dorie's Chewy, Chunky Blondies. I don't think I've ever made or eaten a blondie so I wasn't really sure what to expect. Turns out these are supposed to be like cookies but in bar form.

We can't get butterscotch chips here but to keep the caramelly theme going I used dark brown sugar and some chopped up Violet Crumbles (chocolate covered honeycomb pieces) as well as extra chopped dark chocolate and some walnuts.

I made a half batch in an 8 x 8 pan and baked for 35 minutes. At that point they were puffed and a deep golden brown but after a few minutes on the bench the middle fell completely. So my blondies were a little on the flat and greasy side. But the taste?

The taste test ...

AMAZING. Especially warm from the oven when they're gooey and melty and oh so delicious. You'll see in the photo above there are 2 pieces missing, well a few more went missing immediately after. I wish we had some left!

Thanks for an awesome pick Nicole! You can find the recipe on her blog Cookies on Friday under today's date.


  1. These were good - I loved them and was happy to take them to work so I didn't eat them all.

  2. Wonderful idea.

    I used butterscotch chips and toffee bits.

  3. Violet crumbles - brilliant idea! I agree that these blondies are amazing warm from the oven :-)

  4. I'm glad you were able to substitute other add-ins that were available. I bet they were good with the Violet Crumbles. Thanks for baking with me this week.

  5. Sure hope someone finds those missing blondies. They would be a terrible thing to lose. LOL

    They look perfect.

  6. These were good in batter form, warm from the oven, room temperature, with ice cream, with coffee...sorry, I got carried away!


Thanks for reading! Questions or comments? I would love to hear from you ...
