What is the difference between Blondies and Brownies?

  • Blondies are also called Blonde Brownies, but they really don’t taste like a brownie. Blondies have a vanilla, chocolate chip cookie flavor where brownies are chewy like a Blondie but have a chocolate flavor. 

Are Blondies supposed to be Gooey?

  • Blondies may still be gooey in the middle when they are down. As they cool outside of the oven, they will continue to bake. They should be mostly done with a fully done inside on the outer edges of dessert while the innermost part of the brownie might still be gooey. 

How long will Brownies Last before they go bad? 

  • Brownies should be covered, but can be left out at room temperature for up to 4 days. 

Tips and Tricks for making Blonde Brownies:

  • Blonde brownies will have a really thick batter that won’t spread easily. You’ll have to use a flat utensil to really push the batter down and force it to the edges. Your fingers work well for this
  • Blondies might still be a little gooey in the center and actually be completely done baking. Take them out when the cooking time is done, you smell the aroma and most of the outside of the dessert is done with a little bit of gooey in the center
  • Blondies can be stored at room temperature for up to 4 days
  • Blondies should be soft and chewy. They are a dense cookie bar

  • 2 cup of flour
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 10 oz. M&Ms red, white, and blue  
  • 1 cup semi-sweet Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a 9-inch square or 10-inch square
  • In a large bowl, mix all of the dry stuff – flour, sugar, and baking powder
  • In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients – melted butter, eggs, vanilla
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry
  • Mix well
  • Fold in the M&Ms and chocolate chips
  • The dough will be thick, kind of like play dough, so it really won’t pour out into your pan. It will do more of a plop into your pan. Push the dough out to the edges making sure the depth looks pretty even.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top starts turning a little crusty and golden, and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean
  • Enjoy with a tall glass of milk


  • This blonde brownie makes a thick brownie. The center might not seem like it will ever set. It’s meant to be moist. Make sure that you let the brownie set and cool completely – like an hour. This will allow any moisture to air out and the brownie will set up even more for you
  • *It’s perfectly fine to eat the brownies before they cool completely, just know that they will be really moist
  • You can make this recipe in a larger pan to ensure more even doneness. Check on it to be sure that it is not overcooking, as the more spread out the batter is, the quicker it should bake
  • Store in an airtight container or covered with a wrap to keep moist up to 4 days
