Blondie Brownie Mix - At Home Baked The Blondie, also known as a “blonde brownie”, is a rich, sweet dessert bar alternative to a chocolate based brownie. A southern recipe with a preference for brown sugar over granulated is used to create these “butterscotch bars”. The name is from a chef who was inspired to create these in 1982 after watching an MTV video by the pop group Blondie. The Blondie is a really delicious treat for fans of brown sugar and are an experience you will not want to soon forget! The dominate flavor of a blondie is brown sugar and they have a more cake-like texture then our brownies. They will also keep their cake-like texture for about two weeks in an airtight container on the counter.
