It’s time. Lead me not into temptation. Wait, who am I kidding?? I know a shortcut!! White Chocolate Blueberry Blondies!
UmmSeriously…if I wanted, I could have destroyed these blondies, but I HAD to stop myself! They are dangerous!!
So dangerous, I kept sneaking bites, pretending they were calorie free.
That’s what the voice in my head kept saying. It says it often!
*Whooo-hoooo! Over here! I’m CALORIE FREE! CALORIE FREE!!*
Don’t judge, but, I tend to steer into denial-mode whenever I am in the presence of sweets. That inviting voice of reason was screaming loud and clear…”Ya know…it’s ALL because of the blueberries…they’re healthy for God’s Sakes!!”
Which makes it totally OK! Right?
These thick and chewy White Chocolate Blueberry Blondies are wonderfully enhanced with juicy blueberries with a hint of white chocolate and are topped with a tempting, creamy white chocolate blueberry cream cheese frosting. Yum!!
Blueberries are in peak season and if you have an over abundance of blueberries or just love blueberries in general and these look good enough for your next party or holiday weekend, you should make them!
If you want to forego the frosting, you can sift some powdered sugar on top or eat ’em naked! Who cares? Just bring on the White Chocolate Blueberry Blondies! Blueberries make everything ok!!
Don’t forget Father’s Day!!! Dad’s want!!
