I have to admit, I don't think I've ever taken a good photo of brownies or blondies. They're not a particularly cute dessert to photograph –– they can be crumby, misshapen... or maybe it's just me. I don't sweat it though because regardless of whether a dessert is pretty, the question is: is it edible (and how soon may I devour it?)
During the "bomb cyclone" snowstorm, I essentially locked myself in the house for a few days until it went away. Don't get me wrong, I love snow. But when a snowstorm is branded in such a manner... I think I'm good to stay home and bake.
This simple recipe takes blondies just a step further with the additions of peanut butter, honey and dark chocolate –– three of my major comfort foods. You can also swap out dark chocolate for white chocolate for something a little different, but I think the dark chocolate is a nice balance to the sweetness of just about everything else in this recipe.
