I've been wanting to make blondies for a while now since I first encountered them in a sundae at Milk. Conceptually, these blondies should have been delicious. In reality, they were good. But this was due to my own human errs. Because of my obsession with all things cute, I decided to bake these as mini blondie bites... big mistake. I ended up overcooking them a teensy bit due to them being in such a tiny pan! Don't get me wrong, they still had nice flavor but they were just a little hard rather than deliciously moist. One day, when my obsession with cuteness dies down, we shall meet again...
