Recipe Comments & Reviews

Very easy. i made them plain this time, but next time will try adding pecans or walnuts. Excellent chewy texture!
This recipe is "man" friendly. A lot of men don't like chocolate brownies but will scarf this "brownie" down!
I made a double batch...because I knew one lil 8x8 pan wouldn't last long in my house! Very good recipe, super sweet. I didn't have pecans on hand so I used walnut pieces (yum!) i agree about the cook time, as mine were done in @ 21 minutes.
This is my go to, easy dessert. They disappear fast and everyone wants the recipe! I double the recipe, use 1 cup chocolate chips instead of nuts, and bake in a 9x13. Even more delicious served warm w a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This is always a sure hit. I've baked this recipe many times, but have learned to take pan out of oven when it looks as if it needs another minute or two. My family prefers toffee bits on top instead of pecans inside. Very sweet - cut into small pieces.
This is a keeper. Everyone wanted this recipe.
Very quick to make. Watch how long you bake it carefully otherwise you could be serving a tasty brick :)
I've tried many blondie recipes and this one RULES! I skip the powdered sugar and add about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chips sprinkled on top before baking. I also make it entirely whole wheat. I *heart* this recipe!
