Blondies, akin to brownies but sans cocoa, have a fascinating history. Blondies are believed to have originated in the late 19th century, and some credit the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago for their creation. Legend has it that a baker there forgot to add cocoa to the batter, leading to the birth of this delectable treat.

The magic of celebration blondies lies in their ease of preparation. With just a few pantry staples and a splash of creativity, you can whip up a batch in no time. The creamy vanilla Oreos provide a delightful contrast to the chewy, buttery blondie base, while the sprinkles add a whimsical burst of color and crunch.

These bars are a celebration in themselves, a bridge between generations, delighting both the young and young at heart. So, whether it’s a birthday bash or a “just because” moment, let celebration blondies be your sweet companion in spreading joy and happiness with every bite.

Blondie Tips

  • Use a light-colored pan. Dark-coated baking pans cause the edges of your blondies to bake too fast.
  • Line your pan with parchment paper. Lining your baking pan with parchment paper for easy removal from the pan. Your blondies won’t stick, and it will be easy to lift the brownies from the pan.
  • Crispy crust. To obtain that crispy blondie crust the key is properly mixing the eggs. The more you whisk the batter once the eggs are added, the more shiny and crispy the crust will bake.
  • Don’t over-mix the batter. Only mix your batter until the dry ingredients are incorporated. If you overmix the batter, the gluten in the flour will develop, and make your blondies too dense.
