Blonde Brownies and A Day of Celebration

Updated on July 30, 2014

Enjoy A Batch of Blonde Brownies

Blonde Brownies have everything that I crave for in a dessert. I love milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips along with the richness of brown sugar and butter. They are also very quick and easy to make which saves time especially if you are having guests.

I am not surprised that there is a National Blonde Brownie Day considering how much I love this sweet treat. Have you ever tried a blonde brownie? If you have, then you know that this holiday is well deserved.

Blonde brownies are so yummy that you simply must make a batch to celebrate on this day or any day.

When you combine butter, brown sugar, and two types of chocolate chips it's easy to know that this is one delicious brownie. I love the texture too, crunchy on the outside and moist and chewy inside. So good with a glass of cold milk!

      I love sweets, so I know I'll love these. I've had them at restaurants, but I'm sure they're better baked at home. Thanks for the recipe!

      I've never heard of a Blonde Brownie before, much less a National Holiday. Good heavens, I've been missing out!

      I love blondies - in fact I have written a lens about it too. Great minds think alike. :) Pinned to my cookies board.
