Yes, brownies are awesome, but not just because they're vehicles for chocolate. They're also unbeatable texturally (especially if your preferred version is chewy, dense, and fudgy), amenable to add-ins, and dead easy to make. You know what else are all those things? Blondies.
Yet blondies don't get that much love. They're simply brownies made with brown sugar in place of cocoa, and especially with a nip of bourbon or a scattering of fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips, we like them just as much. Want proof? Give any of these 8 recipe a try.
