The other day I had a craving and a pantry full of ingredients...this happened.
This was an interesting craving though because you see, I have never made blondies before and dare I admit, I don't remember ever eating one. But - I really wanted to make them. I found a very simple recipe that included some ingredients in my pantry - then I went ahead and added one more ingredient from my pantry and ended up with this wonderful treat. The kids were at the movies with their aunt so this surprise was in the oven when they came home. They really smelled delicious. So good that we had to all try one before the appetizers and dinner were even in the oven.
The ingredient I chose to add to these were some mini semi sweet chocolate chips - they were perfect. But I do love to add semi-sweet chips to a lot of things because they are one of my favorite sweet treats.
My husband decided these needed to be served warm topped with ice cream and some caramel sauce - oh my goodness - he was right (but don't tell him.) I wish I had a picture of that for you.
Try these now - please - you won't be disappointed!!
