Mom's Blonde Brownies (Blondies)

OK, so these aren't the healthiest bars in the world, but a crowd favorites nonetheless! These were one of my favorites that my mom made when I was little. These are always a quick, easy option when you need a treat to bring to an event! You won't be bringing any leftovers home! :)

I thought these were almost too rich, but my DH and good friend thought they were perfectly wonderful! I used half butterscotch chips and half chocolate chips..

Great texture, chew and flavor. I made them with a couple of Symphony bars (milk chocolate, toffee and almond) in place of the chocolate chips because apparently someone (my money's on DH) got a serious sweet tooth and went through an entire bag of chocolate chips... Go figure. At any rate, these were good good good!
