My baking experiment #179 – chocolate-chunk blondie/brownie

Happy Sunday! Oh boy, it sure is hot in Dallas this weekend! We’ve reached temps over 100F with heat index way beyond that. It most definitely feels like summer!

With these rising temps the only way to survive is with ice-cream. I eat ice-cream for breakfast, lunch, dinner & dessert. It’s the perfect relief from the heat.

But this morning i have a hankering for some brownies and blondies. So instead of baking up a batch of brownies and a batch of blondies, i decided to combine them into one batch of browndies (or blonnies)!! πŸ™‚


  • 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1Β large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4Β cupΒ cocoa powder


  • 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks, divided


  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Line 8X8-inch metal baking pan with foil.
  2. In separate bowls for blondies & brownies, whisk butter and sugar until blended.
  3. Add egg, vanilla and salt, then whisk until smooth.
  4. Add flour (and cocoa for brownies) and stir until fully incorporated.
  5. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chunks into each batter.
  6. Spread both batter evenly in lined pan and bake 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Cool then cut into 9 squares.

These browndies (or blonnies, however you wanna call them) are super gooey & fudgy! When combined, you get both the deep chocolate flavor of the brownies and the caramel-y flavor of the blondies. The chocolate chunks give them an additional layer of flavor & texture. They are simply divine!

Why decide between a brownie or a blondie when you can have the best of both? These browndies are perfect by themselves eaten warm, and even better with a cold scoop of creamy ice-cream on top! That’s the best way to beat the summer heat!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and happy baking! πŸ˜€
