Chocolate Chip Blonde Brownies

The official name of these squares is really Chocolate Chip Blonde Brownies but we never call them that, I made these on September 12, 1988, the day my son Darcy was born, from that day, they were called Darcy's Squares!

I've been making these squares since the 70's - I don't even know where the recipe ever came from but everyone always seems to like them!  They're easy, they're quick to mix up, they don't use many ingredients and they're good!   Of course, anything tastes better in Pyrex too!

Click on the recipe to make it big! 

If you don't care for the nuts, you could just put twice as many chocolate chips on them, they would be just as good!!! 

These little melmac plates come in handy for just a little bit!!

I'm linking this recipe with Junkin Joe - check out the posts, there's always such an interesting variety of thrifty finds, crafts and recipes!


  1. It's so funny Jill. Just yesterday I was looking at one of my little Nova Scotia church lady cookbooks and saw a recipe for these! Never before and then twice in two days. :)

  2. They look absolutely delicious! The recipe is easy as you said. I'll probably make a batch as soon as I get over the pie I had on Thanksgiving!

  3. These look good! And let me get this right-- you made brownies the day your son was born??!! Hope that was before!! ;)

  4. I remember this recipe and have it in one of my books I'm sure. I haven't made them in years but remember they were quite tasty. :)

  5. I'm not a fan of chocolate chips, but they look fab!

    I almost bought that yellow flower Federal bowl from an antique market this week... but nahhh. Didn't.

  6. I love the name of these! How cute!
    They look yummy yummy yummy!
