Blondies!

If I ever have to make a last minute dessert, or have a dish that doesn't quite work out as planned, I turn to my old stand by: these incredible chocolate chip blondies.This is probably the recipe I get asked for the most, and is the dish I repeat most frequently, simply because its so easy, and always comes out great. This recipe actually isn't originally mine: it comes from an old teacher of mine from high school who I still keep in touch with.
You can also customize this recipe to use your favorite additions. I generally use one bag of semisweet chocolate chips, but you can use substitute some white chocolate chips, or add some chopped nuts, M&Ms, you can even try mini marshmallows. Let me know what you try! Whatever you pick, I'm sure they'll come out as chewy and delicious as always.
Tip of the Day: When you've added all your ingredients, raise your mixer beaters an inch higher and turn it on low for a few seconds to get all the batter off. But if you raise them too high - you'll end up with spattered hair and clothing!

Recipe:
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2.5 cups flour
3/4 bag semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 bag white chocolate chips

Cream together butter and both sugars until creamy.
Add in eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Gradually add in flour, baking soda and salt until completely combined.
Stir in chocolate chips (or whatever!) at the end.
Spread out in a greased 9x13 pan, and bake at 350 F for 30 to 35 minutes.
