Blondie

Watch me making this by clicking here.

Bon Appetit magazine listed the “Blondie” as one of the food trends of 2013 and I can only concur. This is decadence with a capital D. For too long chocolate brownies ruled the dessert roost – in all shapes and sizes … yet I dare to re-introduce the Cinderella cousin … the Blondie!

– Bon Appetit Magazine | Blond(ie) is the New Brown(ie)
For dessert snobs, blondies have always been a pale imitation of their darker inspiration. But now the fairer-hued bar is coming into its own. In New York, Stellina sells a Dirty Blondie with peanut butter and toffee. And in San Francisco,Black Jet Baking Co. adds brown butter and Maldon sea salt to set a new standard for what the classic un-brownie should be.

She is so sexy, sassy and delicious. I added all my favourite stuff … like white chocolate (you can give me white chocolate anyday and anytime – just LOVE it) + pistachio nuts + because I am in an Easter mood I added some marshmallow Easter eggs. This is my most adorable sweety thing at the moment – try it. She is a real treat!
