Chocolate Chip Blondies

I haven't been baking much lately and I really miss it! I used to bake weekly and send the goodies to work with John but I have been really slacking. However, when I do have an excuse to bake I get so excited. I made these blondies for one of my students' birthdays. He came to school and told me that his birthday was horrible and he didn't get to do anything fun so I decided that needed to be turned around. I made some blondies and we celebrated in school. My kids this year think I am the best "chef" (their term haha!) and always moan and groan when they eat my goodies. They rub their bellies and do the whole 9 yards. It cracks me up- first graders always make you feel good about yourself.

These blondies are addictive! I had a small one and kept sneaking back into the kitchen and slicing pieces off and eating it. So so good. I made the recipe exactly as stated only I subbed white chocolate and mini semi-sweet chocolate for the regular chips. I didn't have any so I used what I had, but you could use any kinds of chocolate chips. I personally would love them with peanut butter and milk chocolate chips... yummmmmm!
