Four ingredients to fabulous.

Brownies.  I've got nothing against them. I just have nothing for them.  I appreciate them.  I like them.  But I don't loooooove them.  Doctor them up?  Perhaps wrap them around an Oreo?  Now we can talk.

Blondies are entirely different.  I'm not sure why, but they deserve my love.  Fast four ingredient ones?  True love forever and ever.  Especially since I am fairly certain that you have all four lazing in your kitchen this very moment.  Preheat your oven.  It is ON!
Part cookie.  Part cake.  All awesome.  Just like the evil Two Ingredient Fudge, you are only limited by the combinations that you come up with.  Or the choices in your pantry.  All I had was white cake mix and semi-sweet chips.  So perhaps these are a bit more platnium than blonde, but the taste was hardly different. Next in the queue are the teeny tiny Reese's Cups.  Can you just imagine?


Feel free to attack the pan immediately after removing it from the oven.  Not like I did or anything.  But my most favorite thing to pair them with?  Ice cream.  Messily smashed up in a big bowl of ice cream.  Dreamy, soft, and oh so cookie dough-esque.

Enjoy and tell me what combinations you try.

  6. Dang, I DO have all those ingredients in the house. Now I have no choice but to make them, and my serious lack of self control ensures I'll have the pan licked clean by tomorrow.

  7. Uh-oh. This new knowledge could be quite dangerous. I think have a cake mix...and chocolate chips.

    Looks like my sugar break-up might come to a screeching halt.

  11. My hubby used to make these .alot.
    We did the devil's food cake with choc chips and also with peanut butter chips.
    Mostly the yellow with choc as that is his fave.
    I like that they are not too messy (that would kill my ocd) and that they taste good warm and cool later :)

  35. Just found your blog and have been reading ... and reading ... and reading. Love it! It's a ray of sunshine.

    These blondies sound to good to be true. Easy and yummy? We just might have to make them tonight.

  36. I think I just went crazy with the "creativity" side of your directions.

    We double every recipe and bake in an 11 x 15 pan, because of our extra large family. So ...

    I made one batch with chocolate cake mix, chocolate chips, and some chopped nuts.

    I made the next batch with yellow cake mix and butterscotch chips.

    I spread the chocolate layer in the pan, then topped it with the "blonde" layer.

    Then, after baking, I made a chocolate sour cream frosting to top it off with.

    Off to cut the cake. It looks/sounds delicious.
