Ok, so today is National Blonde Brownie Day!
I know just yesterday was Granola Bar Day and now suddenly it’s Blonde Brownie day and you probably officially think I’m crazy and I probably am but I just REALLY have always wanted to give the below recipe a shot…and finally I had my excuse to execute it.
In high school, we found ourselves at a certain chain restaurant a lot. Like, there wasn’t as much back in our town then, and for some reason we always went to this “neighborhood” establishment because I was too busy being a teenager to really worry about where we were going, we just needed a place to “hang out.” Remember those days? Yikes. I wish I could quietly be at another table and watch my teenage self with my semi-responsible adult eyes that I have now. Or maybe I don’t. Anyways…
They had this dessert – I think then it was just called the “White Chocolate Blondie” but it came out in a sizzling hot skillet – and it was a blondie with a big scoop of ice cream on top and this ridiculous maple sauce. It was hot/cold, and it was the best flavor explosion my teen self had ever tasted. It was the one thing from that place that I loved to eat. Back then, I never thought about creating it at home. Over the last few years, I have told myself that this magical dessert would be recreated in my kitchen. I knew it probably wouldn’t be too hard.
