Heath Bar Blondies
-

As mentioned in my last post I made blondies from the new book The Cookiepediaby Stacy Adimando. I love this book so far! For my non American readers readers a Heath bar is a candy bar sold in the US that is simply crunchy “English” toffee coated in milk chocolate. According to Wikipedia it’s not a very popular candy bar at all but more popular as topping for ice cream and other sweet treats! This post being a good example of that.Don’t forget there’s still time (until Monday) to win a copy of Cookiepedia! Head over to this post for information on how to enter (now that I’m on WordPress it’s only necessary to enter your email in the form not in the comment itself).
