mint chocolate blondies

March 6, 2012
What began as my favorite ice cream flavor has magically transformed into the blonde version of a brownie (also known as the blondie.)  I've made chocolate chip blondies, but the addition of mint just might knock one's socks right off.  If that weren't enough, I played extra naughty and added crushed Thin Mints on top.  I'm  a bad, bad girl. 

So there you have it.  Mint chocolate blondies   Oops.  There goes your diet. 

It was a stupid diet anyhow.  You look grrreat, my friend.   And in other great news, I discovered my old LFO CD last night.  Between that find and these blondies, the world is whole once again. 











Mint Chocolate Blondies

2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
16 ounce package dark chocolate + mint chips
1 sleeve Thin Mint cookies, crushed

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Cream butter with sugars. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat in eggs and vanilla. 
  2.  Combine the dry ingredients and mix into the sugar mixture. 
  3.  Stir chocolate chips into the dough. Spread dough into a greased 9x13 pan and sprinkle crushed Thin Mints on top. 
  4. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes or until golden brown and done. Let cool in pan 15 minutes before cutting.

I'm not a big mint fan but I have a ton of friends who are. Plus the green adds a good St Patty's Day flair!

These have me weak in the knees. I'm a fool for blondies, and for mint/chocolate combo. These look heavenly!
