Chocolate Chip Swirl Blondies featuring Beech's Fine Chocolates...

Every week after watching Great British Bake Off I always get a real urge to bake so a few weeks ago I decided to make some Blondies. Recently I was sent a selection of chocolate bars by Beech's Fine Chocolate* to include in some baking so I thought I would add some milk and white chocolate to these blondies and they turned out so well, I really do think they are the best things I have ever made.
I really struggled to find a simple blondies recipes, I looked for ages and even on pinterest they all seemed to be really fancy or required ingredients I didn't have. Eventually I found quite a basic one but it was in cup measurements, I just tweaked a few things and added in a few extras. 

1/2 cup of butter, melted
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
100g of chocolate chips or broken up chocolate, I used Beech's Milk and White Chococolate*
Nutella or any chocolate spread, I used white and hazelnut spread

1. Pre - heat oven to 180 degrees and grease a square baking tin, and line with baking paper
2. To start, melt the butter in a saucepan then add to a large mixing bowl, add in the sugar and stir
3. Add your eggs one at a time and the vanilla extract, stir until everything is combined
4. Add the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt and fold into the mixture.
5. When everything is combined and you have a smooth sticky mixture add the chocolate chips or broken up chocolate. I used Beech's Chocolate bars, half white* and half milk* which were so creamy and smooth.
6. Transfer to your tin and then top with nutella or chocolate spread. I used a few teaspoons of a hazelnut and white swirled chocolate spread and then I used a skewer to swirl it all together on the top. This was a bit of a last minute addition to it but such a good idea.
7. Bake in your pre - heated oven for 20 minutes then leave to cool in the tin for 10-15 minutes before cutting. 
The inside was so gooey but the outside was crispy and together it really was amazing. I cut mine into pretty big pieces so the mixture ended up making 9 but I definitely could have got more out of it as they are really sweet and only a little square would be enough! This is definitely something i'll be making again in the future!
