Author Notes: These are like blondies, only better. They have that sweet-salty, chewy-crunchy combination that satisfies on every level. I started with the Toll House cookie recipe and tweeked the heck out of it.almacucina

Food52 Review: Road rage? Try road rave! I tested the Blond Moment Bars and they are quite possibly the best blondies I've ever had. They have just the right blend of sweet and salty, with a most enjoyable texture. The recipe was a breeze to follow and the bars looked great. The only problem? The argument during our road trip over who would get the last bar!AnnieG
