I have a non-chocolate lover in my house. He is finicky though. Sometimes he likes chocolate ice cream and he definitely likes Oreos. But he has declared that he really doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies. What? No chocolate chips? But he will do “some” M&Ms in there. See? Finicky. He knows what he likes.
What he likes, and now all my kiddos like, are Blondies. They are a chewy cookie-like brownie that is just like a chocolate chip cookie, but in brownie form. And just as easy to make, which is good for me! I find that if I stick to my good old, Betty Crocker Cookbook (affiliate link), I can make a basic, if tried and true, recipe for Blondies that my kids love. Win. I adapt the recipe to omit nuts and I usually don’t mix the chocolate pieces in…hence the no-chocolate situation. But sometimes, I will do 1/2 a batch without, and the other side of the pan with M&Ms or chocolate chips. That way everyone is happy, and that is very important in the peace-keeping in my house!
Here’s what I do:
Thank you Betty!
