There will be no "blonde" jokes when you serve these moist chewy blondies at your next get-together. They are rich and chewy like their chocolate counterparts. You may serve them untopped or make a cream cheese icing to dress them up and take them out. If you use salted nuts, there is a craveworthy sweet and saltiness like a salted caramel. You will be asked for this recipe again and again!
