Malted Dark Chocolate Chip Fudge Blondies

Hey everyone! Des from Life’s Ambrosia here again! This time I’ve brought with me dessert. A gooey, fudgy dessert. To be a little more precise, today I’ve brought with me a recipe for Malted Dark Chocolate Chip Fudge Blondies. They are gooey, fudgy and loaded with dark chocolate chips, malted milk and hot fudge.

I was never much of a dessert eater until I got pregnant with my first son. Then, at around 4 or so months, the sweets craving hit me. And it hasn’t left.

My son is 3 1/2.

Now, I pretty much need some kind of sweet treat every night. My boys are the same way. I’m not talking about a slice of cake or giant ice cream sundae. But a little bite of sweetness. A “snackable” dessert if you will. Because of this we always have some kind of snackable dessert lying around the house. If you come to visit, you will usually find  some kind of sweet that you can snack on like a cookie or a pan of bars or brownies. And chances are it will be loaded with chocolate.


These Malted Dark Chocolate Chip Blondies totally fit the bill. They are beyond easy to make. In fact, you can do all your mixing in one bowl. You can really cut them to however big or small you want them to be. They are super chewy. And the layer of fudge on the top gives them an extra chocolately gooey factor.

They are everything that a good bar dessert should be. They are a huge hit in our home and are sure to be in yours too!

What is Malted Dark Chocolate?

Malted milk powder is made by sprouting and drying a grain, typically barley, and mixing it with powdered milk and wheat flour.

It gives a  slightly nutty and sweet flavor to whatever it is added to.

Is Dark Chocolate Good for You?

Dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health.

Studies show that real dark chocolate (not the kind that is packed with sugar) can improve your health and lower the risk of heart disease.

What is the Difference Between Blondies and Brownies?

Blondies are considered the opposite of brownies because they are vanilla-based and brownies are chocolate-based.

Blondies share similar ingredients to brownies, but lack chocolate.
