YUMM. Nice pictures, too! I like that they are really close up shots and take up my whole screen, making me wish they were actually that big.

Painfully easy to make, it seems! Thank you for sharing!!!! I made white choco peanut butter blondies a month or so ago and they were great! I will try your recipe soon!
