One Bowl Series | Blondies swirled with Nutella

I decided to try a mini series on my baking days. I absolutely love baking, but sometimes I'd like the luxury of not washing half my kitchen tools after one recipe! Then I remembered Deb of Smitten Kitchen doing one bowl recipes, and thought let me challenge myself. It'll be a fun experiment to test my creativity so just stick with me, and I'll try to make it worth your while :)

Ok, the original recipe actually called for peanut butter chips in this blondie. Problem is I'm not really a blondie person, so I needed some chocolate to motivate aka add chocolate chips. When I have time (and the ability to remember to buy peanut butter chips), I definitely have to try it with peanut butter chips! Maybe even some fluff o___o it'll taste just like a s'more... I'm concocting things already in my head! I even have a Halloween inspired recipe in the works! Just for you guys :)

   The Ingredients
       (source: Averie Cooks)

   The Blondie
        ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
        1 large egg
        1 cup light brown sugar, packed
        1 tablespoon vanilla extract
        1 cup all-purpose flour
        1 cup chocolate chips
          (or peanut butter chips!)

   The Swirl
        1/3 cup Nutella

     The Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-by-8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Melt the butter in 30 second bursts in the microwave, stirring in between. Let cool before proceeding.
  3. Add egg, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Add flour. Stir until just combined.
  5. Add in chocolate/peanut butter chips.
  6. Pour batter out onto baking pan, and smooth with spatula.
  7. Add Nutella to the batter and swirl into a marble pattern.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
