    I don't use baking powder in my other blondie recipes and I wish I hadn't used it for this one. The bars turned out more cakey and not as moist as my other recipes.

    Ooey gooey and just what my grandkids love. Thank goodness one kid will be outside playing off the "coffee/caffeine" and the other two teenagers are going out tonight. LOL These brownies won't last long in this house.

    Loved these coffee blondies! I've made a butterscotch brownie for many years and had never thought to add coffee to the chocolate chips and pecans ~ your recipe is a new favorite! Tagged for Sweet December 2014 on ~

    Very tasty bars! I used some instant cafe de olla for the coffee, and those new caramel-filled Nestle chips. As already mentioned, these are super gooey if not fully cooled prior to cutting and serving. Once fully cooled, they still gooey but cohesive, and they form a lovely thin crispy coating on the top. These made the house (and my car, and the office area at work) smell wonderful. For all the sugar in these, they aren't overly sweet, either. These were very well-received at work -- even a couple people who typically pass up coffee-flavored treats really liked these! Another keeper for the bar cookie rotation, thanks for posting!

    I just love how simple these were to make! The bars look so pretty and have that lovely coffee smell - these are a winner! My only problem was that becase of a plumming problem in the morning, I couldn't use my kitchen until right before the meeting I was bringing these to - so they didn't set up properly - so make sure you leave enough time for them to cool. Even though mine were a bit soft in the middle parts, they were so good people scooped them up and ate them like that! I am definately making these again - with enough time next time! Thanks, LL, for another keeper! Made for PRMR Tag.
