A desert for gentlemen who prefer blondies

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

According to Hollywood, gentlemen prefer blondes. But what about blondies?

This Father's Day, why not find out? We’ve dreamed up a white-chocolate-studded blondie treat with a duo of tastes that is easy to love — rich coffee and crunchy cashews. We brought it all together in a sweet, rich bar that, thanks to a generous helping of brown sugar, stays moist and chewy with just a hint of crunch on the outside.

Want to take it even further? Sprinkle the top with flaked sea salt just before popping it into the oven. If Dad doesn’t like cashews, then peanuts, almonds or walnuts would be good, too. Or maybe you want to add a bit of each.
