This year's Thanksgiving is going to be small for my family. Just four of us, in fact. "Quaint" is how it would be described in a real estate ad. I actually prefer small gatherings - less arguing, more leftovers. That's why I created these Hot Chocolate Frosted Pecan Pie Blondies - for the leftovers. As the designated dessert specialist in the family, I'm thrilled that some hot genius created a ready-to-eat all-natural frosting that's available in stores and online because on Thanksgiving I'd rather spend more time curled up on the sofa with Donald than crouched over a counter in the kitchen. And with a dessert as easy as these Hot Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Blondies, I'll be back on the couch in no time! I made these last night as a sort of "test run" and accidentally almost ate the whole pan. Dan said they were a bit heavy on the bourbon but I told him there's no such thing. We both agreed that these these bourbon infused blondies were 1000x better with Dollop Hot Chocolate Frosting than without. Like a slice of gooey pecan pie with a shot of bourbon and a mug of creamy hot cocoa...
Pecan Pie always reminds me of that scene in When Harry Met Sally. No, not that one. The other one. Pecaaaaaan Pieeeeeee...
These blondies are insanely easy to make. Don't doubt me, just make them.
So this year, replace your traditional pecan pie with these Bourbon Pecan Pie Blondies, don't skimp on the frosting, and when everyone around the dinner table gives thanks, they'll definitely be giving thanks for you. ♥ Heather
