Cookies and Cream Blondies

A nice big batch of brown sugary cookies and cream blondies is the perfect way to feed a crowd.  Bring them to your next potluck, BBQ or party and watch them disappear.



      I was in a baking mood recently and hadn't brought treats to work in a while.  So I figured I could scratch my baking itch and fill up the coworkers making everyone a winner! Of course something easy to grab and eat without utensils is ideal for the work goodie table.  A bigger batch is in order too.


    I had actually had the idea for these fun cookies and cream blondies for a while now and it seemed like a perfect time to make them a reality.  I love making blondies like this because they take so very little effort to put together and the number of possible variations is almost endless.

     Our obsession with blondies started with the candy bar blondies a couple of years ago.  Then last year we made fun Easter egg blondies. Both were so well received, so I cannot wait to make a bunch more different flavors.



     But this time I decided to go with cookies and cream.  What is it about cookies and cream that makes it so popular?  I suppose there's that thing that they taste so darn good!  I mean, I guess that's reason enough right? My coworkers are fans as well, so I knew I had a winner on my hands before they even hit the oven.



    Of course Little Dude  got in on the act and put together the batter.  I chopped up the chocolate sandwich cookies while he put together the rest of it.  He just loves to measure, mix and help.  Luckily these don't take a mixer or anything fancy, which makes it even easier for him to help.

    I left a couple of pieces at home for us and took the rest in to the office.  The plate quickly disappeared despite the fact that a lot of people are "watching what they eat."  I suppose they were watching it go into their mouths if nothing else.  That's the way I usually watch what I eat too!



   If you love cookies and cream deserts and want some more ideas, we loved the cookies and cream cake I made for my sister's baby shower.  But one of our absolute favorites is the cookies and cream cheese ball.  Every time that one gets made, it gets gobbled up in no time flat!

  2. Hi Carlee, I love chocolate brownies, but never have ventured down the path of trying blondies. I really should. I do love the way you make sugar sound so good, I don't really drink and I don't smoke, but I do like sugar and some people are really shocked by that addmission.
