mint chocolate blondies

March 6, 2012
What began as my favorite ice cream flavor has magically transformed into the blonde version of a brownie (also known as the blondie.)  I've made chocolate chip blondies, but the addition of mint just might knock one's socks right off.  If that weren't enough, I played extra naughty and added crushed Thin Mints on top.  I'm  a bad, bad girl. 

So there you have it.  Mint chocolate blondies   Oops.  There goes your diet. 

It was a stupid diet anyhow.  You look grrreat, my friend.   And in other great news, I discovered my old LFO CD last night.  Between that find and these blondies, the world is whole once again.
