I just couldn’t hold it in any longer.
I’ve been dying to post some fall-feelin’ recipes lately but I hesitated thinking “It’s too soon”, “They’re not ready yet”, “Don’t kill summer”. But every day this week has been crisp and cool and overnight it’s become pumpkin palooza and everything autumn. So it’s time to tuck those flip-flops at the back of the closest my lovies and embrace the delicious flavors of pumpkin, squash, apple, cinnamon, ginger and MMMMMMMMAPLE.
What better way to kick off the season than with these irresistibly sweet and decadent White Chocolate Maple Blondie Bars. They are everything they sound like and more. Thank goodness I served this for company or else I would have devoured the whole pan.
It wouldn’t be the first time.
Rich, sweet, buttery and utterly delicious. These White Chocolate Maple Blondie Bars are like a hug from your bestest friend…that you haven’t seen in a year. With the first bite you will just pause and then eventually say “Ooooh, that was just what I needed.”
These blondie bars come together in a pinch with the hardest part being waiting for them to cool. It sounds easy but have you ever waited for brownies/blondies to cool? It’s torturous. You’re best to just leave the house because the aroma wafting through the air will surely break you. When you’re ready to serve them, plain is perfectly fine, but a cool and creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream just…well you can imagine…sweet perfection.
