Chocolate Chip Blondies

DSC_0427Supposed to be white chocolate chip blondies but apparently i cant find white chocolate chips at the supermarket. Had the strong urge to bake that very night, so i had no choice but to use the normal chocolate chips. I’ve gotten this recipe from one of my favourite youtube chef, Laura Vitale. I baked this blondie long time ago, with white chocolate chips and there’s really a difference between white chocolate chip and chocolate chips. I prefer the one with white chocolate chips though. The most recent blondie with chocolate chips is delicious too and it received good comments. I guess it’s just personal preference. You should try this. THese blondies are really really good.

Classic Fudgy Brownies

These brownies are so easy to bake. I made these last weekend for my steamboat gathering with my friends and these brownies received good responses! It’s slightly crisp at the top and fudgy and moist at the bottom. Some brownies sold outside are hard and dry and the cost like 3 bucks a piece??? Why not bake it yourself at home. They are super easy to make w just some simple ingredients that you prolly can find them at home and this recipe is almost foolproof! They are easy to store. Just pop them in an air tight container and they can be kept for a couple of days. I completely forgot about the cocoa powder until they are sitting in the oven and the best thing is they still tasted incredibly good!!
