    The good folks at PlentifulPantry sent me a couple of their dessert mixes to try and here is the second installment….Chidester Farms Blondies with Maple Sauce. The mix makes is sooooo simple to whip up a batch in no time and the blondies were very good – but what made this dessert GREAT is the maple sauce !! IT was rich and sweet without going overboard. It is a perfect sauce – I want to buy it and put in on EVERYTHING :)

    The big box comes with enough ingredients to make 2 batches – 2 batches would fit in a 9×13 baking dish while 1 fits nicely in an 8×8 baking dish. This is as simple as putting together a cake mix – - simple, simple, simple . And the blondies….oh they just melt in your mouth !

    As well as the mix, you will need a few ingredients:
    ¼ c water
    1/3 c vegetable oil
    2 eggs

    1 batch yields 12 servings
    250 calories per serving

    Just follow the package instructions and then sit by the oven and wait – because you want to dig into these as quick as humanly possible !

    Try serving with some lite vanilla ice cream or some whipped topping.

    Be sure to visit PlentifulPantry and check out their products – they have a whole bunch of ‘partially prepped’ products that get you out of the kitchen faster without skimping on quality. This is also available this month at Costco – so be sure to get some and put the sauce in your coffee, on your morning cereal, in your granola – and even on the blondies :)
