Gingerbread Blondies

I don’t always love chocolate (I know, I know) but I love brownies! They are one of my FAVE desserts. More than half of the reason I love brownies is the fudgey texture and the crackly top. Traditional blondies, as good as they are, often just don’t have that gooey texture and are usually more like dense cake. Not these blondies! Although they look like chocolate brownies, there’s no chocolate in them at all. That dark color comes from molasses, a key part of the gingerbread flavor.

These blondies are so gooey and so warm and so spicy and bake so easily in a brownie pan. They are the perfect, unexpected addition to your holiday parties!
