    A Real Pleaser

    Robin Wilson from Virginia

    Easy to make and the blend of caramel blond with chocolate chips result in an excellent brownie.

    Soooooo good!!!

    LISA LOMBARDO from Turnersville, NJ

    Wow, wow, wow! I love these blondies. I chose to bake mine in a 9x13 pan because I like them thicker. I had a bag of the chocolate and peanut butter morsels that I wanted to use, so I substituted them for semi-sweet!! Excellent! Just a touch of peanut butter flavor. They were so delicious..thicker like a brownie should be. This recipe is a keeper!!!

    YUMMMMMMM!

    Amy Stotts from ,

    I've always used a cake mix as the base to my blondies and just felt that it fell short. I was right, apparently! These are terrific!

    Very Yummy! I had 1/2 bag(6 oz) of white chocolate Nestle morsels I needed to use up, so I mixed them with 6 oz chocolate semi-sweet.

    Thick and chewy deliciousness

    Jirarat Prompinit from Honolulu, HI

    I've made these blonde brownies 4-5 times and they're always popular. Instead of using just the chocolate chips, I use a combination of white chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, and semi sweet chocolate chips. They are delicious. I also bake them in a 9x13 in. glass pan so they are pretty thick and dense. Be sure to adjust baking temp and time as necessary.

    great

    Whitney Wiemold from Cherokee, IA

    these were so good I would definitely make these again!

    mmmmm

    school cook from iowa

    I cook / bake professionally, and I was worried about the consistency of the batter- it's very runny for brownies. But, never fear, they baked and set up nicely. One hint. Sprinkle the candy chips on top of the batter. They won't necessarily sink to the bottom of the dough.

    A hit everytime!

    Cassie Collis from B.C, CANADA

    I originally found this recipe in the Nestle Toll House book: Best Loved Cookies, that I had borrowed from a public library. Unfortunately, I had to return it, but only after I had baked this recipe. My family instantly loved them and we took them on our 2-day camping trip and came back with none left! Just last week, I was doing some baking for the next camping trip and wanted to make them again. I found the website and the Blonde Brownies Recipe and made them, and again, they have been a huge hit! Thank you Nestle, this recipe is a sure hit everytime!

    Everyone Begs for this Recipe

    Tressa Cincotta from NY

    I've been making these for years now, so much so that I no longer need the recipe. Everyone raves about these & begs for this recipe. These are simple to make & absolutely delicious. They have enough chocolate for chocoholics, but not too much for those who are not. I often measure out a second batch (flour mixture in one container & brown sugar in another,) which makes it super easy to whip up a batch in minutes. Highly recommended!

    delicious

    ashley laman from ,

    I am a short order cook at an American Legion and sometimes get bored when we're slow. So instead of scrubbing walls I typically bake. I usually make cookies but found this recipe on the back of the chip bag and decided to try it. Although my chocolate chip cookies are always a hit these brownies were gone before they cooled. I had two gentlemen fight over who wanted to buy the whole pan, and we don't even sell desserts!

    Yummy

    KATHY GREEN from South Daytona, FL

    I made them and used white chips instead of the chocolate, I am not a big chocolate lover(I know un-American)but, they were still great tasting.

  •  Star(s)

    kid pleaser!

    Amy Wright from Anderson, SC

    These brownies taste more like a thick,rich chocolate chip cookie, than a traditional blonde brownie! They are the #1-rated treat for my daughters "tea party"! The girls are coming back for more right now!!

    Brings back memories........

    Terri Dorff from

    My husband asked me to make blonde brownies just like he used to get from the lunchroom in elementary school. I didn't have a recipe but I knew to log onto this website and I would find a good one. I made this recipe and he just loves them. There's plenty of chocolate taste and very moist. Needles to say, it was a winner in this house and I will make them again!

    Carol Chivalette from HOLLYWOOD, FL

    I made these for our BETA CLUB Bake Sale at school. They were a huge success. Everyone loved them. I did not have a jelly roll pan and used a 9 x 13 pan and baked for twenty minutes longer. Again, a huge hit and I will make them for many more bake sales.

    I've enjoyed making and eating these brownies for many years. They have been welcome treats from home sent to my friends and siblings when were away in college! I've also sent them as Christmas gifts for my daughter's teachers.

    Very good with substitution

    Steve Formica from Hinsdale, NH

    I have made these a few times and substituting white chocolate chips for the semi sweet really made these the perfect dessert. Everyone loved them and they were all gone in no time. Looks like I will be making these again.

    These are so easy to make, and they are always loved at parties. They freeze well too. Sometimes, I make them in mini-muffin pans, and they are extra pretty for serving at a party.

    They disappeared so fast!!

    angelina saldana from bakersfield, CA

    I made these brownies, except I substituted the chocolate for butterscotch, and my family devoured them. I took some to work and they went just as quick. They are always asking me when I am going to make them again. They are so delicious.

  •  Star(s)

    Out of sugar!

    M Kondal from New Berlin, WI

    This is a great recipe for those times you find you are low or out of granulated sugar and need to make something quickly. So easy and delicious. I substituted Nestle Chocolate Morsels with Nestle Swirled Morsels. What a wonderful variation.

  •  Star(s)

    Simply PERFECT

    DEBORAH HINES from LYNN, MA

    These are BY FAR the BEST Blondies out there. I had a recipe that I've been using for years and came across this one and tried it. Now everyone always LOVED my old recipe, but this one has it beat by a long shot. Easy to make, easy to add your own touches. Use different kinds of chips, save some and sprinkle on top...whatever, just make these!

    alternate ingredients

    JOY FABIANO from YOUNGSTOWN, NY

    Since my loving husband gave me a 3lb. bag of candy coated chocolates for Valentine's Day, I needed to use them up so I substituted the choc. morsels with 1 cup chopped candy coated chocolates,(food processor). I also substituted the butter for Smart Balance Buttery Spread and for the brown sugar I used Brown Sugar Blend (Splenda). They turned out delicious. I will definitely make again.

  •  Star(s)

    easy and excellent

    Andrea Cravitz from STEVENSON RANCH, CA

    I used 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips and 3/4 cup of butterscotch chips everyone loved them.

    Variations Even Better

    Michele Gifford from GAINESVILLE, FL

    I substituted 1 cup butterscotch chips for half of the chocolate chips plus added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. My husband's work colleagues finished off the panful in record time. They're a wonderful base for a scoop of vanilla-caramel ice cream. I like these even better than regular chocolate brownies.

    Alternate Option

    Amber Chapel from Gaylord, MI

    I tried to bake these with Butterscotch Chips instead of Chocolate chips because one of my friends doesn't like chocolate, he loved them! In fact, all of my friends enjoyed them!

    Good but better with,

    Dawn Marsan from RICHMOND HILL, GA

    White chocolate chip-macodamia nuts. I had some in my pantry instead of reagular chocolate chips, so I used them. Now this is the must have recipe in my house.

    Tasty

    CRICKET ELIEFF from SYRACUSE, NY

    These were really good. I made them for a small scrapbook party and they were almost gone. I added chocolate chips with caramel in them. My 5 year old loved them.

  •  Star(s)

    OK

    Gloria Bailey from Orondo, WA

    I made these and they were not as dense and chewy as I would have liked. I will try again and bake them in a smaller pan and maybe shorten the baking time.

    So easy...

    Jeffrey Sickels from SACRAMENTO, CA

    ...and so good. I don't recommend adding nuts. They are best when one just follows the original recipe.

    love these Blondies!

    Marie DeAngelis from Sunrise, FL

    I made these blond brownies to go on a "dessert tray" of bar cookies I baked for a family gathering. Everyone devoured them! They look tempting arranged on a tray with traditional chocolate-walnut brownies and a frosted cocoa brownie, all cut the same size, nestled inside seasonal cupcake papers for serving. I am the baker in my family, so I'm asked to bring dessert...I always use Nestles chocolate chips and baking chocolates. I'm having a great time trying new recipes...Thanks for the web site!

    I had never made blond brownies before so this was a real treat. They come out soft and chewy. You just can't stop at one. I served them warm with a small scoup of vanilla ice cream and just a drizzle of chocolate sauce. A must keep recipe.

    EXCELLENT!!

    Jennifer Smith from GASTON, IN

    I made these Blond Brownies this year to add to my Christmas Goodies, I was so glad that I did, they were so good and very easy to make too. I did save a few pieces so the rest of my family could have a "taste" and they loved them too. I think these will definitely be staying in my recipe box so I can make over and over again...Thanks for the excellent recipe!! :)

    Blonde Brownies

    Heather Barto from GIBBSTOWN, NJ

    Excellent! Soft and chewy, almost like a bar cookie, and the recipe makes a lot. Bake only until a pale golden color, or the outer edges will get over cooked. These make a great base for brownie sundaes. Just add vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce and whipped cream, and you have a fabulous restaurant style dessert!
