If I wonder why my jeans are getting a litte snug it’s because of dangerously delicious Egg Nog Blondies.
I’m feeling a little guilty for eating almost this entire batch, but trust me you want to give these a try. I am trying to convince myself not too feel to bad because I used light egg nog; like that really helps in the midst of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and brown sugar. In the end, these are worth every bite. I’ll just tell my twins to run around a little more to help me burn off some more calories.
Let’s talk a little about these perfect treats as to my lack of willpower when it comes to eating these, or any sweets for that matter. I had got a bit of egg nog to have on as I do every holiday but also with the intentions to create a delicious dish or two since egg nog is such a traditional holiday beverage. My Pumpkin Brownies/Blondies (or as I have named them, Pumpkies) were popular this fall. I wanted to create a holiday blondie and this combination was turned out fantastic. It has the perfect hint of egg nog, it’s not overpowering. If you serve these to guests, they will be pleasantly surprised of the flavor since these don’t scream egg nog when you look at them. These are good just plain, but with the addition of a white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and walnuts makes these a treat that will be hard to keep on hand.
The texture is between a brownie and cake. Its not as soft and light as cake, but it is not as hard and chewy as a brownie. It is soft, moist and delicious. The perfect dessert to serve for a holiday gathering!
