I’ve tasted dozens of blondie recipe over the years, and in my opinion, these really are the Best Ever Blondies!
After one bite, I knew these were the BEST EVER BLONDIES. Give them a try, and you will find out why!

They have that yummy crackly top, but the inside is nice and chewy. And they are packed with so many tasty ingredients that every single bite is heavenly. Seriously yummy bars people!
Blondies with two kinds of chocolate, coconut, and nuts. Chewy and amazingly delicious!
My cousin made them for a reunion last year, and I was in love after one bite! It’s taken me way too long to get the recipe from her, but I sure am glad I finally have it!  They are chock full of goodness. Two kinds of chocolate, plus nuts and coconut. So darn good! Make sure you let the melted butter cool, or it melts the brown sugar too much and the texture isn’t as good.
