Why a Blondie? 

They say blondes have more fun, right? That’s especially true when some Death Wish Espresso is thrown into the mix. The blondie is a slight twist on a classic brownie dessert. But instead of being made with cocoa powder like traditional brownies, blondies use vanilla and brown sugar to achieve the sweet flavor. Throw in some chocolate chips and espresso for a little extra flavor and caffeine, and you’ll be in heaven. This is the dessert for those who don’t want chocolate overload but still love the ease and comfort of a brownie.
