Blonde Brownie Bars for Valentine’s Day

Sweet Blonde Brownies

February has finally arrived here in Upstate New York.  What does that mean?  Blonde Brownie Bars.  Sorry, I got sidetracked for a minute.  It really means cold and blustery winter weather is here.  Lucky us, not!

The older I get the less I like the winter months.  I’d rather be sunning myself rather than taking a vitamin D supplement, camping in the Pink Paradise, and picking fresh fruits to use in my homemade jams and jellies.

So what do you do when it gets cold and blustery in Upstate New York?  You bake.  And since Valentine’s Day is sneaking up on us I decided to make a batch of Blonde Brownie Bars loaded with both peanut butter and chocolate chips.

I am planning on making decadent chocolate cupcakes for the big day but I couldn’t pass up making a pan of blonde brownies to get the celebration started.

These bars go great with a glass of milk or under a big scoop of ice cream.

    These would be perfect any day of the year and with a big scoop of ice cream. No plans for any sweets this Sunday. We’ve had lots of birthday celebrations and lots of blog sweets. The weather here in Michigan is pretty yucky also, so maybe we’ll have soup. Happy Valentine’s Day!
