READY IN: 24hrs 40mins
Recipe by cookiedog

This recipe was developed for RSC #9. (Thank you Tigerduck for the wonderful ingredient list). Each bite offers a different flavor in this bar that is rich sweet and candy like. A decadent treat sure to impress. The cook time includes time in the fridge. They should be cut in very small pieces as they are very sweet!

Those blondies are lovely! As you say each bite offers a different taste. I couldn't make the icing because I didn't have the time, but everybody who tried the blondies said they taste excellent. Thank you for creating such a wonderful recipe!
