It’s a wonder I have any ingredients left to even make these blondies. We all remember what happened with the peanut butter last week. Well, it’s a good thing I was away all weekend because otherwise there would be zero peanut butter left and this recipe wasn’t going to happen. Actually, I came home from the gym yesterday morning and dipped some pretzels into this peanut butter…and then when I realized I needed to save what was left of the peanut butter and pretzels, I went ahead and ate some (ok, half a brick) of leftover fontina cheese. At 7:30 AM. Why do I have fontina cheese, you ask? Because me and this chick had a CRAZY Friday night.
It started out innocent enough with the idea to make THESE amazing nachos…with the addition of black beans and a block of queso fresco because you can never have too much cheese. Clearly ours didn’t look as delicious as How Sweet’s looks, but I’m sure they tasted just as yummy. See, check out our cute little set up.
Aaaaand let’s get a close up.
We were very proud of ourselves for eating about half of the nachos before putting them in the kitchen and out of sight. We then settled in with a bottle of wine and, you guessed it, some episodes of White Collar.
Dreaaaaaaaaam boat! I LOVE YOU FOREVER.
Soon enough, our sweet tooths kicked in and we went to town on left over toffee bits and white chocolate chips. They are one amaaaazing combination. If there’s any left after I emotional eat because I can’t marry Matt Bomer make the below blondies, there may be a toffee/white chocolate chip recipe in your future. Oh, and before I forget, the rest of the nachos got devoured before I took Kristin to the train station on Friday night. Yup, nachos made for eight people were devoured by two. Fatties of the world unite! Just your typical, run-of-the-mill single girl Friday night.
So, these blondies. The ones that I was supposed to make last Thursday but chose to run 8 miles and stuff my face with a fatty, greasy dinner instead. Then they were supposed to be made on Sunday, but I chose to go to bed instead. Soooo they were made last night. I promise they were worth the wait! There is absolutely nothing healthy about this recipe. No applesauce, no whole wheat flour, no fruit, no veggies. There are, however, two sticks of butter! Yum! And this is why I made these blondies Monday night after a morning that consisted of running 3 miles, spinning for 45 minutes, and then kicking my own butt with 45 minutes of lifting. Oh, and then going for a lovely stroll at night with my dear friend Lisa after these baked to help ease the cramping in my stomach from the sugar shock I put it in. That’s what too many white chocolate chips and three giant squares of these bars will do to you. I’m definitely going to die an early (but happy) death.
