blondies



We all know that blondies are the white equivalent of brownies, but the history behind these two tray-baked treats is rather confusing. The first recipe for brownies was made in the late nineteenth century, but they were were actually the equivalent of what what we today call blondies. What's more, to start with, neither of these contained any chocolate at all. One was more of a gingerbread mix, while the other more like butterscotch.

The actual name 'blondie' arrived in the 1980s, and by this point definitely feature our much loved white chocolate, which you'll be pleased to hear is present in this recipe. As is a refreshing dose of coconut and a few brazils.
