I’m about to give away a family secret.
This recipe has been in my family for many, many years. Some of my earliest memories are of helping my mom mix it up, just so that she would let me lick the bowl!
Yep, I was one of those kids.
To this day, I am not allowed into family get-togethers unless I have a batch of these scrumptious beauties with me. I have one cousin in particular who never fails to ask, “Did you bring the chewies?”. It is an incredibly delicious variation on blond brownies that my mother acquired somewhere.
So, without further ado, I give you:
Granny Meador’s Chewies
2 sticks of butter (melted)
1 1lb box of light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups of self-rising flour
1 8oz pkg Nestle semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Variations – Add 1 cup shredded coconut and or 1 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350°. Place 9×13 pan with butter into oven briefly to melt butter and butter pan. This accomplishes two things; it melts your butter and greases you pan at the same time. WIN! Little trick Mom taught me. Remove from oven.
In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Add softened butter. Combine well.
Add flour, ½ cup at a time. Mix well.
Add Semi-sweet morsels. Mix well.
Pour batter into buttered pan.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until crust is golden brown, top begins to crack, and sides begin to pull away from the pan.
Best served warm. YUMMY! Even better with a bit of ice cream.
I will give you fair warning; this is EXTREMELY RICH. Take small bites, and be prepared to be addicted.
See you next time on the front porch.
