Think of blondies as cousins to brownies. They are flavored with brown sugar and studded with creamy white chocolate chips. Like brownies, blondies are typically made in a baking pan and cut into squares when cool. Baking them in a muffin tin dramatically cuts down the baking and cooling time — so you get blondies extra fast!

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
