A worthy companion to our Truffle Brownie Baking Mix, Trader Joe's Blondie Bar Baking Mix is made exclusively for us by the same supplier, so if you're a fan of the brownies, you're going to love the blondies!
This mix makes rich, sweet bars that are sometimes called "blonde brownies." We call them Blondies. They're golden-tan-colored brownies that are made with brown sugar instead of cocoa powder. They're kind of like chocolate chip cookies, baked and shaped like brownies. You combine the mix with melted butter and an egg, and bake for about 28 minutes.
We like them just the way they are, but if you want to enhance them even further, add your favorite nuts, coconut, or chopped dried fruit. You could even combine them with the Brownie Mix to create an über-indulgent dessert—prepare each mix according to the package directions, layer the Blondie batter atop the Brownie batter in a greased or parchment-lined 13x9 pan, and bake for about 30 minutes in a 350º oven. Wow. We're selling each 15.5 ounce box of Blondie Bar Baking Mix for $2.99. Über-wow.
