Blookies: Easy Valentine Desserts Your Kids Will Love 3

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a sweet indulgence. Bypass the heart-shaped candy boxes and spend some time in the kitchen making homemade Valentine desserts instead. Baking with your kids is the perfect way to show your love. You’ll enjoy some bonding time, teach your kids new skills, enjoy a homemade dish, and even make something to share with others.

Marissa Wojcik, author of the baking blog North Shore to South Bay, is back to share an easy Valentine dessert recipe that you can try with your kids in the kitchen:

Blookies: The Tastiest Topsy-Turvy Valentine Desserts

You’ve heard of brookies, brownies with cookies, or cookie dough on top. Well, I present to you Blookies! I have switched the flavors with the blondie on the bottom and the chocolate cookie on top! 

The chewy texture of these blondies is made even better by the butterscotch notes brought by the brown butter. And really, nothing is better than some chewy blondies topped with chocolate cookies.

Cookies

  • ¾ Cup flour 
  • ¼ Cup cocoa powder 
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 Teaspoon salt 
  • ½ Cup butter, softened (1 stick) 
  • ½ Cup brown sugar
  • ¼ Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg 
  • 2 Cups mini white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, with a mixer, combine the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until combined. Add the egg and mix to combine. 

Once the egg is fully combined, add the flour, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Mix until just combined. Stir in mini white chocolate chips with a wooden spoon. 

Shape the cookie dough into one inch hearts and place in the freezer while you make the blondie dough. 

Blondies 

  • 1 ½ Cups brown sugar 
  • ½ Cup butter 
  • 2 Eggs 
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 ½ Cups flour 
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1 Teaspoon salt 
  • 1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Let it go until the bubbling noise stops and the butter looks nice and brown. Once it reaches this state, remove from the heat. 

In a large bowl, with a mixer, combine the brown sugar and eggs. Pour in the brown butter while the mixer is constantly beating until well combined. Beat in the vanilla. 

Beat in the flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. 

Pour the batter into a 9×9 baking pan lined with parchment paper. 

Take the heart cookies out of the freezer and press into the batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
