Tuesdays with Dorie: Chewy, Chunky Blondies

chewy, chunky blondies

I never make blondies (except for this batch, obviously).  I don’t know why…they are like chocolate chip cookies on steroids, and who wouldn’t like that?  Nicole of Cookies on Friday picked Chewy, Chunky Blondies for TWD, and they are certainly juiced up with chocolate chips, toffee (or butterscotch) chips, walnuts and coconut.

I love butterscotch, but I hate those fake-tasting chips…I still have toffee bits left in the freezer from the Caramel Crunch Bars (yeah, apparently they last forever), and I was happy to use those instead.  With all that’s going on in these blondies, I wanted to tame the sweetness a little, so I cut back just a bit on the sugar and used unsweetend coconut flakes.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Cookies on Friday.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. “Chocolate Chip cookies on steroids!”

    Love it!

  2. Your blondies look great! Definitely chunky and delicious.

  3. They look outstanding! They are pretty sweet, but I still love ’em!

  4. If possible, I may like blondies more than brownies. I suppose its deep caramel flavour is unsurpassed, and if you still want your chocolate fix, you could easily add bits of chocolate to it! These blondies look marvelous!

  5. I don’t need any more tempting sweets in the house, but those look so delicious!

  6. They look wonderful. I always come over here for inspiration and this week I was hoping my photo would be good enough for your visit…sad to say, yours is always always always better…I’m trying, really I am!

  7. Delicious and chunky! 🙂 Glad these turned out so well!

  8. Gorgeous.

    I heart blondies, and I really should make them more often than I do.

    Yours look wonderful.

  9. Love the fact that these blodies are almost healthy…great for my kiddies lunchboxes!

  10. Your blondies look absolutely amazing!! I love these so much! They really are like the best version ever of a cookie!

  11. your blondies look wonderful. I loved these

  12. Those look fabulous! I forget how much I love them between batches.

  13. I know what you mean! They were super sweet. You can’t get butterscotch chips in the UK so I used dime bars which are like heath bars. They were pretty good but a very small amount was enough. Yours look very good!

  14. I loved this recipe, and your blondies look so good. I can’t wait to try them again.

  15. I agree with you on the butterscotch chips; the blondies look great!

  16. did you change your blog layout/banner? Looks good!!! *if you didn’t then i apologize… i’m not the most observant person, lol*

  17. Hmmm – they look so delicious Steph.

  18. Your blondies turned out perfectly. I need to take lessons from you.

  19. Yours look great! I’m sure they were still great with a little less sugar. Thanks for baking with me this week.

  20. Now THOSE look fantastic!! They were pretty sweet. Next time less sugar.

  21. Great looking blondies! They were sweet, but sooo good!

  22. jealous that you have a stash of brownies in the freezer, duh what’s wrong with me? I eat them? oh well….. about those blondies, I was never more surprised. Really surprised! I guess when your expectations are not high, that’s what happens. I’ve never been a big fan. Like you I never bother but these were something I will make again for sure. I love that you used toffee made with your own little hands. That’s awesome. I’m sure a great addition to your blondies. Must try that too.
