4th of July weekend is finally here and that means time for a yummy treat, these Browned Butter Blondies are perfect! I don’t know about you but it seems like it has taken for ever to get to this point in the year. Even though this year’s celebrations may look a little different that doesn’t mean it can’t be yummy. These blondies are the perfect QUICK fix for your weekend celebrations.
All about the browned butter…
I love a good blondie but these blondies are next level. Why? You ask… it is all about the browned butter. Browned butter really does make all the difference. It adds a nutty bite to the bars and a richness that cannot be adequately described with words alone.
Now I do know that the idea of browning butter can sounds a little intimidating but it really isn’t… you just have to pay attention to it. All you do is let the butter melt, it will foam up a little and then slowly it will start to quieten down and some dark bits will appear on the bottom of the pan. Take it off the heat (so it doesn’t burn) and voila you have browned butter! SO easy and SOOOOO GOOD!
Quick & Easy!
One of my favorite parts of this recipe is that it is all made in 1 pan… yep you read that right 1 pan. You use the same pan you make the browned butter in, can it get any easier? I don’t think so! No mixer, no extra bowls, no chilling. By the time your oven is preheated you will be ready to bake.
Also they are perfect for any Holiday as you can use the seasonal M&M’s!!
DONE & DONE!
A Little Extra Chocolate Surprise
To add a little more yummy I decided to add in some chocolate chips to the warm batter and created a fun chocolate swirl throughout the batter. I mean just look how pretty it looks! The little extra chocolate also adds just enough chocolate yummy to each bite as well. I used dark chocolate to make even more of an impact but semi-sweet or milk would work great.
You can leave it out all together if you think the M&M’s are enough.
You need to make these ASAP!
