Although I wouldn't say this recipe is like the one from Applebee's, it's not to bad. It is extremely sweet and rich, so a little of this dessert goes a long way.
This blondie recipe is awesome! The maple butter sauce that goes with it is nearly identical in taste and texture to a maple walnut syrup that I made and canned earlier in the year so I think that next time I will skip that part and use the syrup that I already have on hand. I will say that the blondie and sauce together were very sweet and rich - it was better with vanilla ice cream but I would go easy on the sauce unless you like things very sweet!
