What is the difference between a blondie and a brownie?
The main difference between a blondie and a brownie is the type of chocolate used. Blondies typically don’t have any cocoa making them the “blonde brownie” in the family.
For my 18th birthday, I was allowed to get a job at a local chain restaurant. One of the top menu items there was a white chocolate brownie. Let me tell you, it was one of the most delicious desserts I have ever had! As a major chocolate lover, I even preferred it to a regular brownie! This version is as delicious without the 1500 calories! 🙂
