Cake Batter Bark Blondies


These blondies are gooey and soft and stuffed with a thin layer of swirled chocolate.  Sprinkles make it festive and fun.

Did you feel it?  The chill in the air this weekend???  Yahoo!  I’m so excited, fall is around the corner!  I love summer and I know in just a few short months, I will be longing for the heat and the sunshine.  But for now, I’m so ready for bulky sweatshirt season!!!  Come on, you all know what I’m talking about.  There’s something so liberating about wearing long, bulky sweatshirts  over elastic waist yoga pants!

In about six weeks, I will be stealing Halloween candy from my kids.  In just over two months, I will be stuffing myself with stuffing, turkey and all things pumpkin.  Need I mention Christmas is merely 3 months away????  Bake, eat, repeat.  That is what I will be doing from now until January.  My abdomen is primed and ready.  I started my “training” this weekend.  I baked these outrageously rich cake batter bark blondies and ate them to stretch my stomach for the season of eating!  And I’m totally fine with it, because I had a sweatshirt on to cover it up!!!

I hope you enjoy these blondies as much as I did.  In each bite, you get cake,  two kinds of chocolate and sprinkles!  Oh happy days are here again!!
