Birthday Blondies because everything is better with sprinkles!
Everyone knows what a Brownie is but how many really understand what a Blondie is? It’s not just taking the cocoa out of a Brownie. Blondies are more of a cross between a Brownie (minus the cocoa) and a Cookie. Loaded with brown sugar, you can change these bars up in so many yummy ways.
It was my daughter’s birthday last week. I love making treats for her class but honestly, I’m sick of making cupcakes.
As a class treat cupcakes aren’t practical anyway. Let’s face it, they’re hard to transport unless you have one of those fancy carriers and that’s only good if it’s a smaller class. I had to have 30 treats meaning 2 fancy carriers. I don’t even own one.
Then you have the kids that want to save the treat to take home. Umm, Cupcakes don’t travel well in kids hands. Mushed cupcake at the bottom of the book bag anyone?
And I’m not even going to go into the eating habits of 30 kids and cupcakes.
Luckily, my kids are happy to take any treat I choose to make to school.
I did dress these Blondies up with sprinkles, it was for a a Birthday treat after all. Birthday Blondies!
