Blondies, Congos, whatever you call them, I call them straight up goodness! 😉 I’ll never forgot the first time I tried and adapted a recipe for these bars from an old community cookbook I got years ago. Our taste buds hit the roof, I’ve been making these babies ever since. Here’s my loaded version from the original.

I pictured these on my goodie platters this year and I couldn’t wait to make them. They’re slightly crunchy outside, chewy in the middle and loaded with semi-sweet chips, toasted coconut, pecans and toffee bits. They make this gal do the foodie happy dance, (more like the funky chicken dance.) I wanted to share them with you in advance.
