Blondies! Plus and award!

Blondies made by a blondie : D These are the most amazing blondies ever. They might even be better brownies! Ahh what did I just say? Is that possible? Yes, yes it is. And the best part is that these are the easiest thing to make. Ever. I don't really know how to describe them. They are like a chocolate chip cookie in brownie form. They are soft and chocolaty and slightly chewy.
I made these blondies again, because I was bored. So when they came out of the oven, I was still at a loss of what to do, because these blondies hardly took any time to make. So with my extra easter candy, I melted down the chocolate, and made chocolate stripes with white and milk chocolate.


Everybody went crazy over these blondies too. My mom went especially nuts because she doesnt want me to make baked goods. Because then she can't help but eat them. And she thinks that she can stop me from baking stuff. Ha! Like thats going to happen.

So if you are ever in a need for some super sweet baked goods, these blondies are totally the way to go. They are so quick to make, and since the recipe is pretty basic, you can jazz it up any way you like! Like nuts? Add them. Espresso powder? Chocolate chunks? Different extracts? Go for it!

Im also super happy because I got the Arte y Pico award from Recipe Girl! Thanks Recipe girl!
Ok so then you select five blogs that you think excell in creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.

Congratulations!

I'm totally going to make these! Your stripes look so cool! I might need to do some squiggles or something to make it fancy.

They're really pretty! I can't believe how easy they are to make.

Congrats for the award.

Kitt said...

"Extra Easter candy"?!?!?!? Does. Not. Compute.

Brilliant (and pretty) idea, though! I sympathize with your mom totally. I would be sneaking down in the middle of the night to polish off the whole pan.

And aw shucks. Thanks for the award!

You definitely deserve it.

They're quite handsome. I find the criss cross of chocolate on top of them, mesmerizing.

Now stop tempting mom! Can you hide the baked goods in the freezer? That's what I do.

These blondies looks so lovely with the criss-cross decoration on top.

You really have a steady hand with the decoration Jessy. These just look too good to resist..I can see mom's point:D
