Chocolate Chip Blondies. Yes, please. 

Arlington ISD’s culinary program at the Dan Dipert Career and Technical Center (CTC) has a holiday gift for you! It’s the recipe for one of its most popular desserts, the CTC Chocolate Chip Blondies.

“This is one of the first recipes that the CTC culinary department perfected, and it is still a favorite four years later,” said Alyce Monroe, culinary arts instructor at the CTC.

The Blondies recipe is one of the fundamental recipes that all CTC culinary students learn at the beginning of the year. It is also one of the most frequently requested desserts when the CTC culinary students cater.

“They are a simple dessert with a big flavor!” Monroe said.
