The key ingredients that bring these blondies to life include the rich sweetness of brown sugar, complemented by velvety butter and a hint of fragrant vanilla.

While you can opt for either melted butter or the tantalizingly aromatic brown butter. The brown butter really makes these blondies taste amazing. It brings out the sweet caramel flavors and makes them extra special and delightful.

These heavenly Brown Butter Blondies boast a richness and fudginess that will captivate your taste buds, making them an ideal go-to dessert for those times when you crave something divine without spending hours in the kitchen.

But don’t feel limited by the classic recipe. You can get super creative and try lots of different variations to make the dessert just the way you like it! For a delightful crunch, consider incorporating a generous handful of nuts such as toasted walnuts or pecans into the batter. Their earthy flavors and satisfying texture will blend perfectly with the deliciousness of the blondies, creating a wonderful taste and texture combination. Alternatively, for an extra burst of sweetness or a playful twist, experiment with adding different types of candies—think colorful chocolate chunks, chewy caramel bits, or even tangy dried fruit—to surprise and delight your taste buds.

How to make brown butter blondies

To start, preheat your oven to 350F (180C). Grease an 8×8 inch (20x20cm) pan with butter and line it with parchment paper. Place the butter into a small saucepan and cook it over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it turns a nutty brown color. This process may take a few minutes. Sieve the browned butter into a large bowl and allow it to cool to room temperature.

In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set this mixture aside for now. Add brown sugar to the melted brown butter and mix them together until well combined. Then, incorporate the egg and add vanilla extract, stirring until everything is thoroughly mixed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, stirring to combine all the ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly. Place the pan in the preheated oven.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting the cake into squares.

Now, your delicious brown butter chocolate chip squares are ready to be enjoyed! Hope you will try these delightful brown butter blondies. If you do, don’t forget to tag me in your Instagram posts or stories, so I can see your amazing results. Enjoy as much as we did!
