Chunky Blonde Brownies & Chocolate Cream Soda

Chunky Blonde Brownies Chocolate Cream SodaOnce again my Mom steps in as guest blogger with these two chocolate treats…

I needed to make a batch of cookies to serve at an evening Bible Study. We always make Decaf coffee so thought I’d rather not make Chocolate Brownies.

Instead, I did the next best–Blonde Brownies. I did not have vanilla chips, but did find some white chocolate chips on the shelf. Good substitute!

Papa and I enjoyed them for “tea time” with a glass of Chocolate Cream Soda. (We had to do a taste-test of course!)
