Blondes have more fun. Didn't you know that? ::tosses hair::
This week's Dorie recipe of Chewy, Chunky Blondies was chosen by Nicole of Cookies on Friday. Heck, cookies every day sound good to me! The original recipe calls for chocolate chips, coconut, Heath Toffee pieces and nuts. I didn't have any of those ingredients on hand, but I did have a leftover container of Target's Monster Trail Mix, with chocolate chips, M&M's, peanut butter chips, peanuts, and raisins. Close enough, right?
The recipe came together really easily and smelled absolutely divine. Alex kept asking me "are they ready yet?" like a kid on a road trip - "are we there yet?" The final product? Delicious! The Monster Trail Mix distributed nicely throughout the blondies, giving them a colorful speckled look. The brown sugar caramelized during baking, so they had a nice light molasses and sugar flavor...not too sweet. Blondies are incredibly versatile, and you can add any mix-ins that you like. I will definitely keep this recipe handy for a good crowd-pleaser!
