cherry chocolate chip blondies

After picking over 40 pounds of cherries in northern Michigan a few weeks ago, we have been baking and baking at our house!  Of course, I did freeze a lot of them to use at a later time…too bad they spoil so quickly.

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite cherry recipes…

Cherry Chocolate Chip Blondies

These blondies are super moist and flavorful, and they have chocolate in them…what could be better?!?  One more thing…they are so easy to make!

Ingredients…

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter ( 1 stick)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup cherries (fresh or frozen)…mine had been in the freezer and then thawed

Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges slightly pull away from the pan and the center is set.

Allow to cool for one hour before cutting…if you can.  These blondies are so tempting, you may not be able to help yourself!

They look so pretty when serving them, also.  I love the pop of red from the chunks of cherries!  And the mixture of tart cherries and sweet chocolate is delicious.  Enjoy!
