Red Velvet Blondies

Hi everyone! I am the voice and face behind the blog, Just Us Four. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here sharing a recipe here on Made from Pinterest. Of course, being February, Valentine’s Day is on most people’s minds so a yummy dessert seemed like an obvious choice to share.

Chocolate chip cookies and bars are probably one of my absolute favorite desserts and they come in so many different variations. I absolutely fell in love with this recipe I pinned to my Dessert board from So Festive!

Since it is Valentine’s Day, I definitely wanted to add a little of the holiday color into the bars so I decided to take the recipe and turn it red. Then, after they baked, I cut them into hearts versus bars. Other than that, I kept almost everything else the same.

Ingredients for Red Velvet Blondies:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp red food coloring
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Let’s Make It:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9×13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

2) In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add in vanilla and mix well. Add in eggs, one at a time.

3) In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to the butter mixture letting each prior addition incorporate before adding more. Slowly add red food coloring until desired color is reached. Fold in semi-sweet chocolate chips.

4) Spread batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips.

5) Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden on top. Let cool before using cookie cutters to slice.

The perfect chocolate chip bar for Valentine's Day: Red Velvet Blondies I can't wait to make these Red Velvet Blondies for Valentine's Day. My family is going to love them.

So, I am not going to admit how many of these Red Velvet Blondies I ate during my photo shoot. Let’s just say that the family asked me to make them again so they could have more than one. I had tried other chocolate chip cookie bars before {we call them blondies because they are a lot like brownies} and this one was definitely the best. I loved the amount of chocolate chips and how soft they turned out. Just perfection.
