Chocolate-Cherry Blondies

Chocolate-Cherry Blondies

I found this recipe in a recent Everyday Food that looked perfect for my kids.  I adapted it a bit by halving the recipe, using some whole wheat flour, and mini chocolate chips because that is what I had on hand.  My family likes then under cooked a bit so they are gooey.  If your prefer them fully cooked then add a couple of minutes to the cooking time.  They turned out to be a huge hit for their after school snack and both kids gobbled their blondie up in seconds.  They said they really loved the tart cherries with the rich chocolate… I have a feeling my husband is really going to love them too.

Chocolate-Cherry Blondies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Coat an 8×8 glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine the flour with the baking soda and salt then mix well.

Using a mixer, beat the sugars together with the butter until creamy and smooth.  Add the egg and vanilla then beat until mixed thoroughly.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until combined.  Add the cherries and chocolate chips and mix.  Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Place into the oven and bake for 28 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan before slicing and serving.  Enjoy.

  1. Count me in for gooey brownies and blondies! These look yummy, and I love the changes you made to the original recipe. Baking with whole wheat flour somehow makes things feel like they are healthier! 😉
