It’s been too long since I made anything RAINBOW and I’m feeling pretty darn good! The first recipe that went viral on my blog was back in 2011 and it was my dairy free Rainbow Birthday Cake. I’ve loved all things rainbow ever since. And hey, we can’t talk about rainbow without giving a shout out to my Rainbow Hamantaschen, which also went viral and are crazy popular every year for Purim. I am so grateful that people love rainbows as much as I do so let’s keep ’em coming, shall we?
Let’s talk about blondies. Not a brownie. Not a chocolate chip cookie. It’s some kind of crazy hybrid that piles on the brown sugar, eliminates the cocoa powder and comes out so chewy and addictive. Add gel food coloring and everyone wins!
I love this batter because it’s so fun to play with…but please wear GLOVES!!! Since I’ve never made blondies before (yup, that’s right), I didn’t even know what the batter SHOULD be like so I just made it up and it worked out better than expected. No stand mixer needed and easy to dye the different colors of the rainbow!
Seriously, when I say to wear gloves, I really mean it! If you want to take your chances and play with gel food coloring without the proper protection, go at your own risk! I’ll know it was you who made the blondies because your hands will be rainbow colored and oh so pretty to look at for the next few days.
When you remove the blondies from the oven, the center won’t seem cooked through even though a toothpick comes out clean. The blondies will harden as they cool.
These blondies can be made without the food coloring and they will be just as delicious!
