Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Blondies

This post and the recipe for Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Blondies were sponsored by American Heritage Chocolate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary product to facilitate my review. #ChocolateHistory #IC

I have been on a bit of a blondie kick lately. As we’ve already established, I am one of the laziest people ever, so whenever I can find a quicker and/or easier way to do something, I am all over it.

Case in point: chocolate chip cookies. Love them, but while they’re easy to make, there is a bit of a time commitment to them. You have to mix the dough, then scoop it out onto a bunch of different baking sheets, and unless you have a ginormous oven {which I do not}, you will need to do a couple of baking sheets at a time, which can easily lead to this whole process taking an hour or more.

With chocolate chip blondies, on the other hand, all you have to do is toss everything in a bowl, mix it, slap it into a pan and put that bad boy in the oven. In less than 30 minutes start to finish, and with barely any effort on your part, you’ve got yourself a delicious dessert.

This particular recipe for cinnamon chocolate chip blondies was inspired by American Heritage Chocolate Bites. We are huge suckers for marketing and packaging in this house, so when I saw these little individually wrapped chocolates in their little muslin bag, I just about died.

I mean, seriously. 

Then I read more about them and found out that the coolness goes well beyond the packaging. All American Heritage Chocolates are made from a recipe from 1750 and are made with only those ingredients that were available in the 18th century, including cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, orange and red pepper. They’re a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, and really, really delicious. And for a limited time, American Heritage Chocolates are available at your local Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. {Aside: I could spend days in a Cracker Barrel store. I love how they have such fun old-school toys and treats. And don’t even get me started on their fun kitchen stuff. Seriously. DAYS.}

Anyway, naturally I wanted to make something with these fun little chocolate bites, and due to my recent obsession, my mind immediately went to blondies. Since this chocolate is so special and unique, I decided to jazz them up a little bit with some cinnamon.

The result was so very good. The cinnamon gives the blondies a little extra kick and works so well with the spice in the chocolate. They end up being a perfect grown-up treat {even though my kids loved them too!}.
