Chocolate Chunk Pecan Blondies —gooey blonde brownies loaded with pecans and chocolate chunks with a chewy center and crispy edges.
Blondies are basically brownies without the cocoa powder. They can be made soft and gooey or firm and chewy. These Chocolate Chunk Pecan Blondies are a little gooey and a little bit chewy with a beautiful crackly top. The edges bake firmly but remain soft while the center is gooey from all the chocolate. That thin papery top layer breaking way to a dense moist center is a happy maker.
Dark brown sugar
Semi-sweet chocolate chunks
One of my favorite things about blondies and brownies is how little effort and ingredients it takes to make them. I also love how versatile they are. I’m using pecans and chocolate chunks but you can add:
- Caramel bits
- Toffee pieces
- Butterscotch chips
- White chocolate
- Dried fruit
- Candy pieces
- Peanut butter chips
How to make blondies
This is a one-bowl blondie recipe that requires little effort or patience. They bake in 25 minutes or so and you can eat them with little cooling time.
Start by adding melted butter, sugar, salt, and eggs to a bowl. Mix well then add the chocolate chip and the pecans. Finish by adding the flour.
Spread the batter over a parchment-lined 10x6 baking dish. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes for fudgier bars. Add additional time up to 10 minutes for more firm blondies.
Serve blondies with a scoop of your favorite ice cream drizzled in a delicious Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce with more chopped nuts!
