More Blondies!

August 29, 2012

Now that school has started, I’m baking more.  I love baking treats and then having on hand for Meeshie’s school lunch.  This a great and simple treat for anyone’s lunch.  It can work well with any other fresh fruit.  I think the only thing to change up would be using white chocolate depending on the fruit choice.  But then I love white chocolate almost as much as I love browned butter.  Feel free to add pecans.  I didn’t, but you could.

Cut these up, wrap them individually and stick them in the freezer.  They’ll be ready to add to lunch.  That’s the beauty of a blondie, or a brownie.  Small effort for a great treat.

Chocolate Cherry Blondies

  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1 C Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • 1/8 t Salt
  • 1 C Flour
  • 1/2 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 C Cherries, fresh, pitted and chopped

Grease a 8×8 pan.  In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt.  Melt and brown the butter, let cool.  In a large bowl, add the brown sugar and the butter and whisk until smooth.  Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture.  Fold in the chocolate chips and then the cherries.  Pour into prepared pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until set in the middle.

Makes 16 squares.


  1. Brilliant, Karen! Fresh cherries in a blondie…with chocolate chips!! I have fresh cherries that I picked up on Monday’s shopping trip. I have to see if I have enough to go into your recipe (I tend to eat them really quickly).
    Meeshie is so lucky to have these in her lunchbox this week.

    Have a good day!

    • Allison-
      I hope you had enough cherries, but if not just add more chocolate!

  2. They look moist and chewy in the pictures. Thanks for sharing your recipe

    • Yes, they are moist. That’s one of the many things I love about blondies!

Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing feedback!
