And these babies are sinfully scrumptious.

What's a Browndie you ask?

Well, I just made it up...
As it happen, I proclaim that it's what all brownie blondies should be called from here on out.

This particular delight has a combination of textures. The top is like a blondie but the inside it looks and tastes gooey and fudge-y like a brownie.

As always I've tried to keep things as simple as possible. It's a quick and easy recipe that yields the most unbelievably buttery bourboned caramel-y chunks of browndie, peppered with hunks of gooey chocolate pieces.

I'm going to warn you now: This stuff is fully addictive. Once you're hooked you will be a slave to it. You will stop at nothing to get your next piece. This is not a recipe for the faint of heart!

2 eggs
4 tsps vanilla-extract
1 3/4 - 2 cups dark brown sugar
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/4 - 1 cup chopped pecan (optional)
1/4 cup whiskery or bourbon

First, toss 2 sticks of butter in a medium-sized saucepan on a medium heat.

Pour into a large bowl. Let it cool for 3-5 minutes.

It'll keep for a few day at room temperature and for a week in the fridge.
But once you've tried it, there's no way it'll last that long. You have been warned!
