I was sort of let down by the Applebees copycat recipes for their Maple Butter Blondie. Applebees' blondie is nothing like a traditional blondie and is more cake-like and even sometimes dry (all the better for the ice cream and maple sauce). The blondie recipes I found online were always butter-laden with fudgy textures, which I don't care for. So I made this recipe.
Second: most of the maple sauces are brown sugar recipes, but Applebees' sauce is white. So I used cream, white chocolate chips and white sugar to keep that coloring. Unfortunately, the maple extract has caramel color, so it darkened the sauce a little bit, but it was still good in my opinion.
I hope you like it.
