So, I had no idea that National Blonde Brownie Day was a thing. But ya’ll, it is, and for that very reason, January 22nd is a glorious day in my book.  I mean, quite honestly, any day that honors a delectable treat gets two thumbs up and a celebratory dance from me!

So what is a Blonde Brownie, you ask?  This sweet treat, also known as Blondies, are essentially the same thing as its chocolate counterpart, but made with vanilla and brown sugar rather than cocoa. Many Blondie recipes may also contain candy pieces, coconut, fruit or nuts to add extra flavor and oomph to the dessert.

And what better way to celebrate this indulgence than with a pin round up of some amazing Blondie recipes:
