Raspberry Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Blondies

Hello, February!

How is it that we’re already in the second month of 2017? It feels just like yesterday that I was welcoming the new year in my pajamas while watching TV and eating carrot cake.

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I’m sharing three recipes perfect to serve to your special valentine! The first recipe is my fudgy raspberry hazelnut chocolate chip blondies. I made these without hazelnuts for my coworkers before winter break and got great reviews! The blondie base is buttery and fudgy (no dry and cakey blondie for me, thank you very much), and it’s filled with juicy raspberries, crunchy roasted hazelnuts, and a combination of white and semisweet chocolate chips.

Start by preheating the oven to 338F (170°C) and line an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking power. In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla paste. We’re using vanilla paste here, not extract. That’s right, we’re using the good stuff. This is for your valentine, not coworkers. You want whoever eating this to be seduced after one bite. Add the dry ingredients, followed by the chopped hazelnuts, white chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, and stir until just combined. Push the blondie batter into the prepared pan, top with raspberries and extra chocolate chips, and bake it for 25 minutes.

Let the blondie cool completely before taking them out of the pan. I like a decent sized square so I cut them into 16 pieces. You can, of course, cut your blondies into whatever size you like. Using heart shaped cookie cutters might also be a cute option for Valentine’s Day!
