Welcome to Day 4 of #CranberryWeek, hosted by Caroline’s Cooking and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. We’re sharing cranberry-inspired creations all week long in celebration of national cranberry day. Search #CranberryWeek to keep up to date and follow the #CranberryWeek Pinterest board for more cranberry inspiration.

Blondies are a super sweet dessert that benefits from the addition of tart cranberries. I like the texture of walnuts in this dessert. A bit of crunch goes a long way. Keeping it, “blond” I added white chocolate. Ha!

Dark chocolate brownies with nuts, black cherries, coffee or and so many more combos have a special place in my heart. My problem is I can’t quit with one. That IS a problem, right? Oh well, maybe not.

This easy dessert above can be adapted to use different fruits and fillings. When you find the combo that suits you best you just might have trouble eating just one. I know I do! 😉

    I haven’t made many blondie recipes. They’re not one of my faves, but with cranberries added to the equation? They sounds like the perfect blondie recipe.

  6. Caroline says:

    These sound delicious and look great too – I agree that tartness in with the sweet blondie must be great.
