I made this recipe last night and it is delicious! I added the maple flavoring 1/2 a tsp at a time just in case it tasted too strong per a previous comment. It's just like the one in Applebees!

PERFECT!!! My husband was so upset when we went to Applebee's and they no longer carried the Blondie. So we decided to make them ourselves. We cut the butter by 1/4 of a cup We cut the Maple flavoring by 1/2 and added white chocolate chips to the sauce!! Will try again this weekend!
