Applebee's Maple Butter Blondie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Ria Bia

This recipe is a combination of the two recipes that are already out there on the internet. I played around with making this dessert a little bit more cakey and the sauce a little creamier and this is what i created. (BTW, I work at Applebees so I am always around the dessert!)

Top Review by Julie M.

I am a big fan of this dish and also a chef. I have tried many versions of the recipe and this one has been the most spot on to Applebee's I have found. I had no trouble with the brownie or sauce portions and everything came out smooth and just right on textures.
