Nutella, check. Hazelnuts, check. These blondies are moist and chewy and oh so yummy. Next time, I’ll throw in a handful or two of chocolate chips for good measure.

Cute Blond(ies)

So I’m eating my last little blondie as I write…yum. This was a special order for the recent Mexicana Monday extravaganza – so much fun! The recipe I used is amazingly easy – and you can experiment with different additions as the mood strikes. I highly recommend using almond extract and white chocolate chips…holy hell yeah.
