Pink Lemonade Blondies

I bought this seasonal cake mix last season.

Then it sat in my cabinet…. See how dented the box is? It had been pushed around my baking cabinet for months.

I finally broke it out and made these amazing blondies. Then I typed up this post and then realized that the flavor is no longer in stores and no one would be able to make them, so I stored this recipe away until it would be relevant again. *sigh*

But now here we are and here we go! 🙂

These are seriously SO easy. No mixer is needed. If you can stir some stuff in a bowl, you can make these!

Pink Lemonade Blondies – adapted from this recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction

Blondie Ingredients:

1 box of pink lemonade cake mix (seasonal item)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup milk

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup sprinkles

20131111-221931.jpg

Icing Ingredients:

4 oz powdered sugar

4 1/2 tsp milk

1 packet Crystal Light on-the-go drink mix

20131111-221941.jpg

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350*. Spray pan with non-stick spray. (I used an 8×8 pan, but a 9×9 would work, or even a round pan if that’s all you have.)

20131111-221936.jpg

2. Mix together cake mix, oil, milk, egg, and sprinkles. It should be thick and sticky.

3. Press evenly into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven when the edges start to brown.

**The center might not look fully cooked, but that’s okay.**

4. Let them cool for at least 30 minutes. (That under-cooked looking center will set up and be wonderfully perfect if you let it cool completely!)

5. Mix together powdered sugar, milk, and drink mix packet. Pour icing over blondies and spread evenly with a spatula. Let the icing set up a couple hours.

6. Cut into small pieces to share, or large pieces to devour. 🙂

These blondies are sweet and tart and pink and pretty. I can totally imagine them at a little girl’s birthday party!

Cookies and Cream Blondies

Hello friends!
Remember me? That girl that used to bake and blog about it?
*sigh*
So I had this baby. (Who I’m so completely in love with by the way.)
I’m also back to work full-time, which means basically no time for sugar, butter, and flour.
BUT. My brother was home for Christmas, and I promised him I’d bake him something.

Cookies and Cream Blondies adapted from my favorite blondie recipe

Ingredients:
2 sticks butter (I use salted)
2 cups packed brown sugar (I used light)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
2 cups flour
Entire pack of Double Stuf Oreos, crushed

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Melt butter. Beat with brown sugar until smooth.
3. Beat in vanilla and egg.
4. Add salt, then stir in flour until fully incorporated.
5. Mix in Oreo crumbles by hand.
6. Spray a 13×9 pan with non-stick spray, then pour batter into pan. Spread the top as even as possible.

20140103-184437.jpg
7. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting so that the ooey gooey inside can set.

At first I thought I out too much Oreos in it because the batter was SO thick. I was worried it wouldn’t bake up well.
WOW I was wrong. These were amazing!
My brother claims that they are his favorite thing I’ve ever made. 🙂

Funfetti Blondies

Sometimes you see a recipe and think, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

This is not one of those recipes.

This recipe, you do have time for. This is the easiest recipe ever.

These took about 5 minutes to get from my cabinet to my oven.

So in total, you can have these in your mouth in about an hour.

Funfetti Blondies – recipe found here at Sally’s Baking Addiction

Ingredients:

1 box yellow cake mix (I always use Betty)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup + a splash of milk

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup sprinkles

1/2 cup white chocolate chips (Sally noted these as optional. I opted in!)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350*. Spray pan with non-stick spray. (I used a 9×9 pan, but a 8×8 or even a round pan will work if that’s all you have.)

2. Mix all ingredients together except the white chocolate chips, mixing them in last. It should be thick and sticky.

20131111-221838.jpg

3. Press/spread batter into pan as evenly as possible.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges just start to turn brown. The center will look under-cooked, but that’s okay!

20131111-221845.jpg

5. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before diving in. Letting it sit and cool will set up the center and make them dense and gooey. (Like a delectable brownie sans chocolate!)

20131111-221850.jpg

These are some of the yummiest things I’ve ever had. If you’re a funfetti fan, make these ASAP!

20131111-221901.jpg

My baking itch is back! Now I just need to manage to find time to bake. And I need to come up with good ideas. And I need to get back to work so my hubby and I stop eating everything ourselves. Seriously.

Chocolate Chip Blondies

I recently made some blondies that were… not so great… so then I decided I needed to keep trying blondie recipes until I found heaven. Because I knew it had to exist out there.

It didn’t take long.

Just this recipe, the very next recipe I tried after the failed ones.

These are basically a blondie base. You can add literally whatever you want to them. I can’t wait to try another batch!

Also – I threw the batter together in like 5 minutes. Not joking.
