MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 29, 2016

"I made these and they turned out okay. Definitely not enough batter for a 9x13 pan. They don't taste too bad but way to much sugar. I cut mine super small. Would have preferred chocolate chip cookies."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 25, 2016

"I made these the other day because I was short on time and I didn't want to dirty a lot of pans by making cookies. These were so simple. I melted some chocolate chips with a dab of shortening and drizzled that on top to jazz them up a bit. My hubby liked them so much, he asked me to make a pan for him to take to the office tomorrow...plus he likes the name Blondies too, I think ??"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2016

"Made this in a 9 x 9 pan. Baked for 30 minutes. Sides were done but center was gooey. Flavor: none. Only flavors come from excessive sugar and greasy butter. Will never make this recipe again! Unless you like raw cookie dough, don't bother with this one."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2015

"Followed the recipe to the t.....after about 30 minutes, I had to pull them out of the oven due to the sides getting done while the center was still not finished baking. The flavor is great, even if they are a little gooey. They are not as cakey-looking as the pictured blondies."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2015

"I made these today and they were good. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch to give them a chewy texture. I also read a review that they were a little bland, so I added 1/4 cup of white sugar and extra 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. I didn't have enough chocolate chips, so I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup cinnamon chips. My family really liked the blondies and thought it was a nice alternative to the brownies I normally make."

"omg. these are the best thing EVER. i'm pregnant and wanted brownies but had no cocoa powder so this was the next best thing. and let me tell you i may never make another brownie ever. I'm making my second batch right now but with less chocolate chips this time. more like 1/2-3/4 a cup sprinkled on top instead of mixed into the batter. all the chips sank to the bottom the first time. lol. still delicious just not as pretty. nom nom nom."

MY REVIEW

"DELICIOUS. DECADENT. Make these. Now. Absolutely scrumptious, very easy to put together. I have made them twice, as written, and here are my thoughts.

Use less butter. I know, I know...but, I think a full stick is just too much. Try them with 6TBS instead, and I think they will be fine. You'll worry that the batter won't be enough for a 9x13, but it will. The mix will spread and rise slightly during baking. It's also really rich, so cut into small squares. I bake it only for 18.5/19 minutes tops bc I like them slightly underdone. Enjoy!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2015

"I doubled this recipe for a crowd and didn't quite get the batter evenly divided in the pans before baking. I lined the pans with parchment so I could just lift them out to cut evenly and I got 20 good sized bars from each pan. Because there were two pans in the oven, I stretched the cooking time 10 additional minutes. The pan that got cheated a skosh on batter was the milk chocolate chip only pan and the cookies were fine, thinner, but still chewy. The pan that got the bonus batter was the half cup semi-sweet morsels, half cup chopped walnuts and Heath bits sprinkled on top pan. Oh heck, those bars cut perfectly and had the best taste and texture. This recipe goes in the keeper file."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2015

"These turned out just okay. They were nothing great. They could have used more chocolate chips. They also do not make anywhere near 36 bars. The most I could get out of it was 16 bars and I think 12 would have been more reasonable. If you are gonna make something for someone don't be stingy, give them more than a little taste!"

MY REVIEW

"Pretty good chocolate chip cookie blondie. Got more than the 36 servings out of mine so I don't know how big people are cutting their pieces. I threw some chopped up dark chocolate into mine as well we as the chocolate chips and it was delicious."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2014

"These came out well and they fit the bill for a late-night sugar craving: fast, easy, and sweet. I actually disagree with the reviewers who say 36 servings is ridiculous-- these are very sweet and rich, and I think smaller squares are perfectly reasonable for this recipe. That way, people can have what they like-- a taste of something very chocolatey and sweet (one small square), or...more...of something very chocolatey and sweet (fill 'er up). I give 5 stars because these came out how they were supposed to. They're blondies! Not the most interesting dessert, just an easy, chewy, sweet bar. Adding nuts (pecans, macadamia, walnuts) might introduce some interest and temper the sweetness."

MY REVIEW

"Delicious ,easy and great for snacks! Would be very easy to adjust to make various kinds. I think peanut butter chips or a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate chips would be wonderful!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2014

"My issue with this is that the recommended serving size is absurd. 36 servings?? For a 9x13 pan?? That doesn't make blondies, it makes blondie bites. In my opinion, the smallest reasonable size you can divide the cake into is 15 bars.

I made some adjustments to the recipe to make it healthier (apple sauce instead of butter, less brown sugar, added banana), and the bars are very good, highly addictive...but they are still about 190 calories each. To make them 102 calories would require the "bars" to be ridiculously small, which doesn't really make it a worthwhile desert for anyone who monitors their nutrition and calorie intake. I can make a batch of muffins twice the size for half the calories. So that was a bit frustrating. That said, the results were surprisingly good and I'll definitely make them again. But I'll try to fiddle with the recipe some more...maybe cut down the brown sugar by another 1/2 cup and reduce the chocolate chips by half as well. I guess I'm just frustrated because I assumed the recommended serving size would be more reasonable and wasn't prepared for a batch of such high cal deserts."

"Incredibly easy to make and it tastes great! I was a little doubtful about it fitting in the 9x13 pan but I tried it and it was perfect as the bars rise slightly when cooked. I would say this cuts to 16 reasonable size bars. Thanks for sharing!"

"Have made these many times over the years. I live at a high altitude (4500ft ) so I have to adjust them. I cut the sugar to 11/4 c. And I cut the butter to 6 T. This helps keep them nice and moist for our altitude. Also, to keep them from being too dry I don't beat them too much. I'm not sure why people say they are too bland--my family really likes these."
