Peanut Chocolate Chunk Blondies




"What are blondies? I've never had one." asked a little friend of mine. "No.. no way." I said, "I can't believe you've never had a blondie! Your... your missing out!" "What are the exactly?" she asked. I simply answered, "I'll show you."

I was inspired to make these for a friend whom has never had a blondie before. I was going to make my favorite blondies, but since I was at it, I decided to try a new recipe for a blondie, and one with nuts (for what ever reason, I've been going nutty for some reason).

They came out pretty good. My friend really liked them. I'm going to make my favorite ones to give her the better experience of the blondies. These blondie don't beat my favorite blondies :P But, these are really chewy, delicious. I think it's best warm, and of course, with a scoop of ice cream!





Recipe

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
10 tbsp. salted butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 oz. roasted peanuts, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and a flour a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside. Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over low heat. Turn off the heat and whisk in the sugar to blend. Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract.

3. Gradually stir in the flour mixture. Pour into prepared pan and smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle the top with the chopped chocolate and nuts.

4. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the middle of the pan comes out with moist crumbs attached.

Makes 24 bars


Also, go see Slumdog Millionaire. Quite possibly the best movie I've ever seen.

to Tiffany, like the opal.He also preferred gemstones that were either opaque or translucent. Turquoise, jade, carnelian, Tiffany Jewelrylapis, moonstones, and opals were all chosen for their ability to filter light. Emphasis based

on color was very prevalent in his works.

forms and techniques, and only began to really put a collection together once he was satisfied with the fruits of his labor.Tiffany EarringsOnce Tiffany and Co.’s began to manufacture his jewelry, there was a

5,500 pieces were produced during that time, an impressiveTiffany Rings amount
