The password for unlocking the flavor of this sesame cookie is chocolate!  Toasted sesame seed adds an unexpected nutty flavor to the rich, moist bars, giving traditional blondies a delicious makeover.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Makes 32 (2x2 inch) squares

3 tablespoons McCormick® Sesame Seed
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract 
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate chips, divided

Toast sesame seed over medium heat in small skillet until golden brown, stirring often. Remove from pan; set aside.  Preheat oven to 350°F.  Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan. 

Melt butter; cool. Combine butter and brown sugar in large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; mix into butter mixture until just blended.  Stir in toasted sesame seed and 1 cup chocolate chips.  Spread into baking pan.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Melt remaining 1 cup chocolate chips.* Spread evenly over bars. Cool completely before cutting into bars. 

*Tip:  Melt chocolate chips in the microwave 1 minute on high. Stir.  Continue to microwave for 10-20 seconds longer, if needed, to complete melting.  Stir until smooth.  After spreading topping on bars, refrigerate 20 minutes to set.
