Super Sunday

I bought this stuff to have to bake when it snowed.  We haven't had much snow, yet.  There is still a chance.  But, I thougth I would bake these to take as our offering at a Super Bowl party.  The Ghiradelli Turtle brownies are from a box mix.  All you add is one egg, water and oil.  I bought it at Aldi's, so I know it didn't cost much.  They are really good.  You mix up the brownies, then squeeze the butterscotch from a packet and then drag a knife back and forth. 
Ghiradelli Turtle Brownie Mix

Made from scratch blondies

The Blondies are a move over, Paula, recipe.  Lots of butter!  But these blondies are to die for!
3 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 lb unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 large eggs
2 T vanilla
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Butter & flour a 9x13 baking pan.  In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder & salt until well combined; set aside.  In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, & brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed- continue beating until light brown & thick, about 7 minutes.  Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each to be thoroughly incorporated before adding the next.  After beating in the fourth egg for one minute, beat in the vanilla.  Stir in the chocolate chips, then the flour mixture just until incorporated.  Do not beat, although the batter will be very thick.  Spoon the batter in to the prepared pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until the top is light brown & a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Set the pan on a wire rack to coll for at least 30 minutes before serving.  Serves  24. 
 (Unless everyone eats two or three!)

I watch the Super Bowl for the half-time show and the commercials!  Enjoy!  Have a SUPER Sunday!



I LOVE the recipes. We're not BIG into desserts. But these LOOK yummy. The simpler it is to make, the more inclined I am to try it. LOL Hope you had a FUN night. We did, here. Take care.

YUMMY. Looks so tempting. I love brownies and blondies. Blondies are a tradition on the holidays for us. Too rich to fix often.
