Wow. These blondies were some of the best I've ever had. They had that slightly sugared-crisp crust that yielded to a very moist and chewy interior filled with melty chocolate and crunchy nuts. I think the peanut butter/nut butter really added to the moistness but didn't overpower the overall taste. The salt in the recipe was a nice touch. When I ate envisioned mini volcanic eruptions of the individual grains of salt on my tongue. These were truly incredible.
I tweaked the flavorings of this recipe a little bit:
-almond butter instead of peanut butter
-Add 1/2 cup crushed toffee (Skor or Heath)
-use almonds instead of peanuts
-chunks of chocolate instead of mini chips
