Blondies (Thanks Food Network!)
He is a big fan of sweet items (one present I bought him that was a big hit was cane sugar candies), so I knew that these would go over well.
And so, for his birthday, in lieu of a birthday cake, he was the overjoyed recipient of birthday blondies. Unrelated to his enjoyment of the baked goods, don't they have a nice ring? I'm a fan of alliteration.
The optional add-in that I went with was the chocolate chips (I have also made these plain and with red and green M&M's for the holidays).
Sorry I don't have any pictures while in production, but here are the finished birthday blondies...
Awww, I'm so clever.
I chose to deliver them whole, to have a more "birthday cake" -like presentation (plus then I was also able to accent with the chocolate chip heart).
Well, they do say that food is the way to a man's heart... these blondies are definitely on the way to my guy's :)
