A Classic: Blondie Bar With Dark Chocolate Chunks

Blondie bars are always a great dessert to make for a crowd.  These blondie bars only require two bowls, a hand mixer and an 8×8 pan.  30 minutes later you have blondie bars that everyone will love.  I made these with dark brown sugar and dark chocolate chunks, which gave a great golden color and chocolate flavor.  Blondie bars are a fantastic dessert to bake with your little kitchen helper.  It’s all about measuring and pouring ingredients into a large bowl, with a few little nibbles of chocolate and/or sugar along the way.  So gather the ingredients and bake this delicious treat today!
