What you'll need:
  • 6 tablespoon cold unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, cold
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
Directions:
  1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang around each side.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and with a wooden spoon or sturdy silicone spatula, mix in the brown sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth and lump free. Quickly stir in the egg until well incorporated. Add the flour, white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and walnuts all at once. Stir the mixture until just incorporated. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the mixture is golden, set in the middle, and a toothpick or cake tester plunged into the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached.
  4. Allow the blondie to cool completely in the pan. Lift the ends of the parchment liner and transfer the blondie block to a cutting board. Cut it into 16, 25, or 36 squares. I prefer more squares, these are quite rich, and they're good for snacks at that size. The blondies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
* If you are not into walnuts, use pecans or any kind of nut you feel to be appropriate!
