Blondies with Chocolate chips ,Walnuts and coconut

Blondies are like having a super moist,dense , chocolate chip cookie. I love having these on hand.Actually I keep half out and freeze the other half,or,yes ,they would be gone in a flash. The original recipe from Martha Stewart did not feature Coconut or White chocolate chips ,but I just tried it and ….great!!! The option is yours.

8 tablespoons ,unsalted butter,melted

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup semi sweet chocolate

1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)

1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)

1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350*F. Brush an 8 inch square baking pan with a piece of parchment paper,leaving a 2 inch overhang on two sides. Butter paper.

In a large bowl, whisk the butter and sugars until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla. Add flour and salt. Mix just until moistened (DO NOT OVERMIX). Fold in . Fold in half of the chocolate chips and half of the walnuts. Transfer batter to prepared pans,sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and walnuts.until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 40 -45 minutes. Set pan on a wire rack , and let cool completely. Using parchment overhang,lift cake from pan and transfer to a cutting board,cut in 16 squares. Store blondies in an airtight container up to 2 days.
