    What a great idea for people who can't decide which one they like better! I've always preferred blondies but the combination of the two looks delicious!

    Oh my word, I can't wait to try these! I just made blondies for the first time last week, and they were really good. I am HUGE brownie fan though too. Saving this one for sure!

    Those look fan-fricking-tastic. Every time we have a vet appointment for our dog, I bake something and take a plat for the staff. Mostly because I adore our vet, but also because I kind of want to be known as the lady who always brings in good stuff. I will make these for our next appt!

    Tessa, do you do your own photography? If you do, you do a great job at it. Some foods need surrounding help and you do it very well. Very appealing. Food stylists get paid lots of money. Great job. You site is a delight! Thanks!

    Sounds delicious! However, the blondie layer calls for chocolate chips…it this an error? 🙂

      Nope, I like chocolate chips in my blondies! You can leave them out if you prefer.

    Hi Tessa! I just wanted to leave you a quick note to let you know I received these Blondie-Brownies yesterday from The Spiffy Cookies Bake Sale and they are unbelieveable! I had to send them to my husband's office or I would have eaten all of them and wouldn't have regretted a bite. Everyone in his office also raved about these. Thankfully my husband saved one more and brought it home so I could enjoy one more. Simply fantastic! You are a wonderful baker and I am thrilled to pieces that I got to enjoy these marvelous blondie-brownies you made. Thank you again!

    I just made these, and I wish my house could smell like this forever. I couldn’t wait after taking them out so I took a bite– the third-degree burns from the hot fork were definitely worth it.

    This is one I’ll try. When my daughter was 10 years old (about 26 years ago) she was given her first recipe book called The Bear Cookbook. It had the best butterscotch brownie recipe. I haven’t been able to either find the recipe or anything close. Any Help on a great butterscotch brownie recipe?????
