Espresso Blondies


These Chocolate Chunk Espresso Blondies are soft and chewy with a burst of coffee flavor, tons of melted chocolate, and a little crunch from chocolate covered espresso beans!

This creation took all of about 3 minutes to mix together and put in the pan. Seriously, just throw all the ingredients together, combine, spread in the pan and bake.

I used Krusteaz Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix for these Chocolate Chunk Espresso Blondies. To kick them up a notch, I added instant coffee powder and chocolate covered espresso beans. The slight coffee flavor makes these irresistible, and the bars are so thick, chewy, and full of chocolate, you won’t be able to get enough!
