20 of Our All-Time Best Brownie and Blondie Recipes
The basic structure of these treats differs in just two main ingredients—there's team chocolate and team brown sugar. Blondies get their color and nutty flavor from brown sugar, vanilla extract, and brown butter. And blondies have a sweet butterscotch flavor while brownies are, of course, purely chocolate. Brownies are typically fudgier than soft, chewy blondies though we have recipes that offer varitions on the texture of each. Butter features prominently in both these bar cookies.
What's ahead? First off we're sharing classics like Chewy Brownies, which are crisp on the outside with a rich, fudgy, and totally decadent interior. It's a brownie recipe that takes the spotlight at dinner parties and as an indulgent lunchtime snack. On the blondie side of things, you'll find that our Butter-Pecan Blondies are just what you'd expect from this classic treat, with the happy addition of toasted pecans for crunch. If you're in the mood to change it up a bit, Fudgy Turtle Brownies should do the trick. Layered with sweet caramel sauce and pecans, they're a decadent bar cookie. For a most surprising brownie recipe, these Slow Cooker Triple-Chocolate Brownies can't be beat. They're hands-off as they bake on low for four hours.
