These bars were a gift for my cookie dough addict friend on her birthday. I felt it was insufficient to throw a jar of cookie dough and all its 30 seconds of glory at her – so I made these!20140615-211214-76334950.jpg

I’ve never been the biggest fan of blondies as it always feels like there’s something missing.. chocolate. Thus, I tried adding a tablespoon of cocoa and it takes these blondies to a whole new level, without taking away from from the gorgeous cookie dough and chocolate cover.image

However, blondies are infinitely adaptable so feel free to throw in whatever you want into them! (chocolate chips, nuts, bananas, m&ms etc)

Refrigerate for at least one hour and remember to bring the bars out to room temperature before you’re planning on serving. I made these on a hot summer’s day so had no choice but to refrigerate over night and the blondies took a bit of time returning to chewy texture. Enjoy!20140615-211213-76333462.jpg

  1. I made these and they were fantastic! I modified the blondie bit sliiightly (am a huge blondie fan) – I added about 100g of melted white chocolate, and left out the cocoa powder. But otherwise I stuck to the recipe faithfully and so wanted to thank you for the really delicious flavour combo and instructions.

    Here’s my attempt! https://i.imgur.com/OL4SPuw.jpg
