Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and butter an 8×8 pan.
  2. Mix melted butter with brown sugar – beat until smooth. Beat in egg and then vanilla.
  3. Add salt, stir in flour, then chocolate chips.
  4. Pour into prepared pan. Dollop drops of peanut butter over the batter (about 1 per blondie piece, or as desired). Swirl with finger.
  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until set in the middle. Gooey is good.
  6. Optional: as soon as the blondies come out of the oven, sprinkle with additional chips (for aesthetics, mostly). Let cool completely, cut, and serve!
