How do you take a chocolate chip cookie and make it even better? Make Blondies!  Blondies have a brownie-like texture, soft and gooey in the middle but still have that classic chocolate chip cookie taste.  Get your glass of milk ready!

I started off by using the recipe at, she has a recipe using dark chocolate covered cranberries.  Her recipe didn’t use any baking powder of baking soda, and it made me nervous. But it got me thinking, Why am I searching the internet for a recipe that I have on hand?  I turned the chocolate chip bag over and voilà! Nestle Toll House Cookies in bar form.  I posted the recipe on my site too.

I’ll be honest, I’m not sure these would be considered ‘Blondies’, but all the recipes out there are so similar to this why not? Next time I’m gonna find some of those dark chocolate covered cranberries that BakingBites used, that sounds wonderful!

These are ooey gooey in the middle and crisp on the outer edges and will have you begging for milk by your second bite.  Don’t snub a classic.  Sometimes its better not to over think it.  Enjoy~

This recipe is familiar to anyone who has made chocolate chip cookies. The recipe comes from the back of the package of Nestle Toll House Morsels. I researched lots of Blondie recipes, but they were all versions of this classic, so why mess with the best? Recipe: Nestle. “Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie.” Very Best Baking.
