Egg Nog Blondies

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had finally purchased some egg nog this season and was wanting to try some new egg nog recipes. And this is the first one I decided to try…Egg Nog Blondies. I really didn’t know what to expect…but after tasting them, I can tell you they are really yummy and moist, and even if you aren’t crazy about egg nog, the egg nog flavor is so subtle that I’m sure you would like these! In addition to egg nog, these blondies also have white chocolate (or vanilla) chips and dark chocolate chips, which both add to the yumminess. I found the recipe at Mother Thyme and just made a few small changes. They are definitely worth trying out!

EGG NOG BLONDIES slightly adapted from Mother Thyme

Makes an 8×8″ pan

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (I used unbleached flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup egg nog, light or regular (I used light)
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips (or vanilla baking chips)
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (or you can substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease an 8 x 8 x 2″ baking pan; set aside.

In medium bowl sift flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon; set aside (I blended these ingredients with a whisk instead of sifting).

In large bowl (or bowl of an electric mixer), cream butter and sugar. Stir in egg and egg nog until ingredients are combined and then add the flour mixture, mixing until blended. Stir in chopped walnuts, white chocolate or vanilla chips, and dark chocolate chips.

Pour batter into your greased 8 x 8″ pan and bake 30 to 34 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (my baking time was 32 minutes).

Let pan of blondies cool completely on wire rack before cutting and removing from pan.

I cut mine into 9 larger squares, but you can cut these into smaller bars, too.

Warning: these are hard to stop eating! I ate a large square after I cut them and another large square after I took my photos! 🙂

Have you tried making any egg nog recipes this season?

    What an absolutely fantastic idea!! My family, especially my hubby, will love these as he’s not a “true” chocolate fan like me:-D

    Hello – I am going to try these tonight but there weren’t any “vanilla chips” in the baking section. Do you think the white chocolate chips would work?

      Yes, those are sometimes called vanilla-flavored chips or white chocolate chips, depending on who makes them. I’ll update the recipe to make it more clear. Hope you like them, Lisa!

    Making these, but I don’t have any white chocolate chips / vanilla baking chips on hand. Anyone try it with only semi-sweet chocolate chips? Too much chocolate flavor?

    These were really tasty! My only issue was that these came out more like cake texture than brownie/Blondie texture.
