PB/Milk Chocolate Blondies

I also made blondies for the football game. I don’t bake much because I usually prefer the sugary sweetness of fresh fruit. However, the boy really has a sweet tooth and doesn’t feel satisfied unless his meal ends with something sugary.

I found this blondies recipe on Simply Recipes and was pleased to discover I had all the necessary ingredients on hand. Having a stocked pantry is key for this California girl stuck in Chicago winter. I never want to go outside in the cold, so I only cook with what I have in the house. Well, it took me a little bit of time to find the brown sugar but I eventually found a very, very dry brick of dark brown sugar. My mom always kept expired food around (she was a Vietnamese refugee with a small hoarding issue) and I remembered that she used to throw brown sugar bricks in the microwave to loosen them up…perfect solution!

I used a mixture of peanut butter and milk chocolate chips. The recipe calls for 1/3 cup of chips but I think I’d add a little more next time. I cut the blondies into small bite-sized pieces and some bites didn’t have any chips (but the yummy brown sugar flavor still came through and was still delicious).

Yes, I love vintage pyrex. This one came from my mom’s collection…which probably came from a garage sale.
