These blondies are moist and chewy and speckled with bits of peppermint and chunks of dark chocolate. You can substitute whatever mix-ins you like. They’re perfect for tailgates and graduation parties this time of year because they pack easily and freeze well too. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour minus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup peppermint bits
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 minute on high power.
  3. Wait momentarily before adding the egg so you don’t scramble it. Add the egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the flour, corn starch, peppermint bits and salt and stir until just combined, don’t overmix.
  5. Turn batter out into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
  6. Place the chocolate chunks on top.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until just set. Allow to cool and cut into bars.
