What are Blondie Bars?

A blondie is a dessert bar also known as a “blonde brownie.” It has the same texture as a regular brownie but is made without cocoa. They are usually flavored with toffee, peanut butter, or chunky candies for added texture. Blondies also resemble cookie bars – but are made with all brown sugar instead of granulated white sugar.
