Now that school has started, I’m baking more. I love baking treats and then having on hand for Meeshie’s school lunch. This a great and simple treat for anyone’s lunch. It can work well with any other fresh fruit. I think the only thing to change up would be using white chocolate depending on the fruit choice. But then I love white chocolate almost as much as I love browned butter. Feel free to add pecans. I didn’t, but you could.
Cut these up, wrap them individually and stick them in the freezer. They’ll be ready to add to lunch. That’s the beauty of a blondie, or a brownie. Small effort for a great treat.
