Cosmic Blondie Recipe

2-CosmicBlondiesAs you all know I’m a huge fan of cosmic brownies, and besides having a nostalgia factor because I used to eat them all of the time as a kid, they’re just really really good! So when I was brainstorming last week about new dessert recipes to share with you all, I thought about something I like even more than brownies; BLONDIES! If you aren’t familiar with what a blondie is (no, not the singer, ha!), it’s basically a cookie bar that is made using brown sugar. So basically the brownie’s more cookie-like cousin. 😉 Now that that’s settled, we’re making cosmic blondies today!!! So we’re taking everything delicious about cosmic brownies,(the icing, the chocolate chips, the soft texture), and turning them into blondies.



For the blondies:

2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large egg
2 cup flour


For the frosting:

1 stick of butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Candy coated chocolate chips (here from Sweetopolita)



For the blondies:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8″ x 8″ baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract, salt, and the egg and mix to combine.

3. Mix in the flour just until you can no longer see the white of the flour. The mixture is going to be pretty thick. Scoop the mixture into the baking pan and smooth out the top with a baking spatula.

4. Put in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.


For the frosting:

1. Mix the softened butter until fluffy. Add in the vanilla and powdered sugar and mix to combine.

2. Pour in the 2 tablespoons of milk and combine until the frosting is smooth. Pour the frosting over the cooled blondies and smooth out the top.

3. Sprinkle on the candy coated chocolate chips and press down gently to make sure they stick in the frosting. Place in the refrigerator until the frosting has hardened.

4. Using a sharp knife, slice the blondies into rectangles or squares, making sure to wipe your knife clean after each cut to keep the frosting from smearing.

5. Enjoy your cosmic blondies with a glass of milk!



A huge thanks to Sweetopolita for having the PERFECT pastel chocolate chips for this project (link to them above)! It’s a snow day here for us, so you know I’ll be lounging on the couch and finishing off the rest of these all day. So if you need me, you know where to find me! Ha! And P.S. if you’re more of a traditional cosmic brownie over cosmic blondie kinda person, here’s a recipe for cosmic brownie milkshakes!
