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.

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
  • Walnuts

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.

Spread the batter over a parchment-lined 10×6 baking dish. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes for fudgier bars. Add additional time up to 10 minutes for more firm blondies.
