Chocolate Chip Blondies with Browned Butter Frosting

Blondies have more fun. They’re like chocolate chip cookies high on brown sugar.

And because they are so simple and quick and I was enjoying my kitchen time on Sunday morning, I added a browned butter frosting that was the perfect complement.  Recipe adapted from Simply Recipes.


Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 inch pan.  Beat the sugar and melted butter in a bowl. Add in the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix the baking powder, soda, salt, and flour. Add into the sugar/butter mixture, then mix in the chips. Press the dough into the pan, and bake for 23-25 minutes.
For the frosting, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the butter has browned into a nice nutty color, whisk in the powdered sugar. Add in the vanilla, and enough milk to obtain the right consistency.  Frost the cooled blondies, and eat your heart out.
