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!)

I made this recipe with egg replacer because of my allergies. Oh my. My husband said it was absolutely addictive. I then had my daughter make it with the egg replacer for a school project (one of her group members is also allergic to eggs). She was getting "mugged" in the hallway by the other sixth graders for the leftovers. It was that good. I used what little sauce I had from both batches and topped an egg-free bundt cake with it. My husband liked that even better. Either way...Great recipe.

This is just for a sauce for now (served over bananas...yumm), but tasting how wonderful it was, it makes me excited to try the blondie part too!! I made a smaller amount (enough for one or two people), but mixing 2T butter, 1/4c sugar, 1/4c cream cheese, 1/2T brown sugar and a splash of maple syrup. I melted the butter in the microwave, mixed everything else in a microwaved it again. It was so yummy!!
