I made this last night. It tasted okay, but not as sweet as a blondie normally tastes. We are going to top it with ice cream for dessert tonight, and that should improve on the sweetness. Next time I make it, I might add maple syrup or another sweetener to enhance the taste. But there are people who prefer not-as-sweet desserts, and this might be better for them.

I sometimes make it with semi sweet mini chips also =} They add a lot to the sweetness. I prefer them without myself. Thanks for your comment =}
