I apologize for the quality of the photo, but I was in a bit of a time crunch when it was taken. You see, I packed up all of these Chewy, Chunky Blondies, this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe, and brought them into work with me today. Every last one. I didn't leave even a crumb at home for myself. And it wasn't until I was halfway down the hall to our staff meeting, blondie-stuffed Tupperware in hand, that I realized I'd neglected to take a blog photo. So, like any good food blogger, I sprinted back to my office for a stealth photo shoot before distributing these blondies to my coworkers.
Why did they all have to go to the office? And why the rush once they got there? Well I knew that once these blondies went up for grabs, they would be gone for good. Because they are so rich, so buttery and so delicious, that once you try one, it becomes almost impossible to resist their siren song. Don't believe me? After tasting a bite straight out of the oven, I actually had to hide these blondies from myself to ensure I didn't eat the whole pan (no small feat when you live in a studio apartment). My coworkers were similarly smitten with these chocolate, toffee and coconut studded bars. So smitten that one coworker who shall remain nameless actually ate four of them during the course of our 40 minute meeting. A big thanks to Nicole of Cookies on Friday for choosing this recipe and keeping my reputation at work intact. You can find the recipe for the blondies here or on page 109 of Dorie's book.
