Funfetti Blondies

Bon Appetite magazine heralds Blondies as a new food trend of 2013.  I'm never one to miss out on a trend and decided to jump on this opportunity!

I decided, one quiet and random Sunday, that was I was going to jump on the bandwagon

and seriously, a bandwagon has never tasted so GOOD!

Funfetti Blondies
(lightly adapted from Avery)
(makes 9 bars)

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
1 large egg

3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup +1 tablespoon rainbow-colored sprinkles (divided)

Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter, about 90 seconds.  Allow butter to cool slightly. To the melted butter add the egg, sugars, vanilla, and whisk to combine. 
Add the flour, salt, and stir until just combined. Fold in white and semi-sweet chocolate chips (or a combination of your favorite kinds of chips) and 1/4 cup (or more) sprinkles. Pour batter into prepared pan. Top with remaining sprinkles 
Bake for 18 to 24 minutes, or until center is set and golden or until edges begin to slightly pull away from sides of pan, or a toothpick comes out clean; do not overbake. Allow blondies to cool completely in pan before slicing and serving, at least one hour.
