Often I am in the mood for a decadent dessert but don’t want to spend the money going out to a restaurant or leaving the comfort of my own home. That is why I have made these Apple bees Maple Pecan Blondies. You can make them at home and it will save you money too!

The melted butter of the Blondies gives it a chewier, denser texture instead of a cake like consistency, something that is unique to Blondies.

This is also an amazing Blondie recipe on it’s own even without the sauce and ice cream but if you want to make it truly decadent don’t forget the extras.;)
