The Perfect Valentine’s Treat

Blondies, brownies, and cookies of all kinds make a perfect potluck, picnic, or party dessert all year round. Especially if they are dressed up in a lovely box or basket!

Blondies are dessert bars or cookies with the texture of brownies but with brown sugar and vanilla instead of cocoa so they stay “blonde.”

These colorful bars can be decorated with any kind of candy, nuts or chocolate chips!
