Cake Mix 3-Chip Blondies

*I lied.  You're getting blondies today.  You'll get the Steak and Caramelized Onion French Bread Pizzas in a couple of days.  I would tell you to "check back if you want something good to eat for dinner" but that seems a little too much like blackmail. 

I've always been more of a vanilla person than a chocolate person.  Or, at least, when I was younger I was.  I wouldn't go near chocolate ice cream or chocolate cake.  I thought it had a weird aftertaste.  (I'm pretty odd, really.) 

Hey, I also wouldn't go near a cupcake of any flavor until I was in college.  So the chocolate thing doesn't sound as weird as it might have at first, now does it? 

I'd still choose vanilla or caramel-flavored desserts over the chocolate ones.  I don't know why.  I know this probably befuddles many of you.

I've always been a fan of brownies though.  But not plain brownies.  They have to have chips of some variety, peanut butter, caramel sauce, or nuts in them.

I saw these blondies on Six Sister's Stuff and they looked so moist and dense.  Almost like a cake-y fudge or petit four.  (Wow, do I love petit fours...).  Unfortunately, the only chip I didn't have in my pantry was the white chocolate variety.  So as awesome as cake batter flavored blondies sounded, I needed to go in a different direction. 

I added peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and, because I no longer live with my parents who despised it when I would do this, butterscotch chips. 

Holy. Cow.

Please make them.

I baked them until they were barely done.  I'm talking i'm-surprised-i-didn't-get-food-poisoning kind of barely done.  They were yummy.

Cake Mix 3-Chip Blondies
makes an 8x8 pan

1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Mix the dry cake mix, oil, and egg together well.  Stir in the chips.  Spoon into a greased 8x8 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.  It takes a bit of time for them to set up, and they are delicious frozen. (Don't ask me how I know this.  I may or may not have eaten half a pan frozen.)

I look forward to investing in white chocolate chips and sprinkles and trying the original recipe!

  1. I love blondies, so I might have to try this. I especially like the idea of using 3 different types of chocolate chips. I actually think the butterscotch sounds like it would go better than the white chocolate, so good choice!

  2. Oh I think I found you by Divine leading! =) I just bought a yellow cake mix today and have an open bag of peanut butter and butterscotch chips on hand! I know what I'll be making this weekend...I'm sooo glad you shared. I love making cookies with mixes.

  3. Sounds awesome. I hate, and I mean, HATE white chocolate. Therefore, your chips of choice (or necessity, as the case may be) sound wonderful! :)

  4. I have a love/hate relationship with white chocolate..sometimes I'm feeling it, other times not. However, I did make the blondies from Six Sisters' Stuff and they are amazing. I mean, Becky, if I could share one with you without you having to waste the time and energy yourself, I would! :)

  5. I can almost taste them and they're delicious! I always try to keep a few boxes of cake mixes in my pantry because you never know when you'll need one. Like when you see a recipe like this. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  6. Wow! I've been looking for blondie recipes lately and this is one I will try for sure! Thanks for sharing them at Crazy Sweet Tuesday! :)
