Perfect soft and chewy homemade gingerbread molasses blondie bars! A fun way to enjoy your favorite holiday flavor!

I’m so far succeeding at not being sick of the Christmas decorations. I’m sure it helps a lot that we put everything up a week later than usual. I still reserve the right to be sick of it immediately following Christmas. That’s usually when I’m ready for everything to go back to normal. Even though I’m usually itching for things to get put away and cleaned up, I honestly hate the packing up way more than unpacking. Unpacking is fun and full of memories. Packing up is just daunting. Sometimes I wish I could just snap my fingers or twitch my nose and have it all magically go away on it’s own.

Normally when there is a book sequel in the voice of another character, but going back over everything that we’ve already learned… I skip it. Why would I want to reread the same story, just in a different point of view? I’ve skipped several so far, but I finally caved yesterday. I couldn’t get enough of my latest series, so I’ve moved on to This Girl. I obviously wanted to love it since I bought it. I hate paying for books and then not enjoying them at all. Thankfully so far things are working out in my favor. It helps that I really enjoyed the first two. If you follow me on Snapchat or Goodreads, you’ll see an update when I’m done with it… hopefully sooner than later!

Also, these blondies…

They’re amaaaazing! And yes, they’re so good that it really required extra a’s.

They’re like eating your favorite gingerbread cookie but in a soft and chewy bar. Ridiculously good!

Perfectly soft and chewy homemade gingerbread molasses blondie bars. A classic flavor for the season and an absolute must make for all gingerbread fans.

This is quite possibly my favorite blondie bar ever. And that’s saying a lot… because I’ve enjoyed a lot of blondie bars!

If you only make one more thing for the holidays, be sure this is it! A super easy, crowd pleasing dessert!
