After many requests I am posting Paula Deen's recipe for Chocolate Chip Blond Brownies. I whipped these little goodies up yesterday as brain food for my husband who sat for the state insurance licensing exam this morning. Apparently, they worked because he passed with flying colors.
3/4 cup butter
2 cups of firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips
6 squares of semi sweet baking chocolate
Melt butter in microwave in 30 second increments. Stir in brown sugar until blended. Stir in eggs until blended. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Then add vanilla extract. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into greased 13x9 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. If using glass pan, bake at 325 degrees to prevent burning. Cool completely. Follow directions for melting chocolate in the microwave on the box. When melted, spread in a thin layer over brownies. Allow chocolate to harden before cutting.
