I’ve got lots and lots to share with you about Italy. It was completely incredible. The food. The scenery. The people. The culture. Everything was amazing.

But I definitely have no desire to eat bread, pizza or pasta anytime soon. And I’m pretty sure I drank more wine that water over the last 2 weeks. As for the gelato, I think I could maintain the gelato consumption. Yep, I most definitely could.

But let’s get back to business and talk about these pumpkin blondies! Before I left, I made these and brought them in to work for my colleagues. People. Went. Nuts. I mean – pumpkin… obviously. Dark chocolate. Duh. It’s really hard to say no.

Any why should we?! Let’s get into it…

  1. It’s October so pumpkin is a given.
  2. Dark chocolate is good for your heart.
  3. Sometimes brownies don’t cut it and you really just need a blondie.

These pumpkin blondies are super dense, moist, gooey-ooey, uber chocolately and pretty much everything that you could want out of a dessert. Oh and they take about 10 minutes of prep and 30 minutes in the oven. So, weeknight dessert here I come!

Are you a blondie fan or do you prefer brownies? (pssst. you DON’T have to choose just one!)

    Ohhh I know what you mean, when we went to Rome (for only 4 days) my stomach was sooo over bread, pasta and pizza! I was craving some extra vegetables, haha. Anyway, I lovvvvvee blondies and it’s the perfect time for pumpkin recipes, so I’ll add this to my pinterest baking-wishlist!

    Italy is still on my list of places I’d love to travel too. And I totally get what you are saying about gelato – it’s been my go-to my entire pregnancy thus far. 🙂 As for these blondies, I’ve always been a fan of brownies but since you’re throwing pumpkin into the mix… I’ll take one of those, please!

      Oh you have to go! It was incredible. And every city that we visited was so different from the last. It was magical!

    Welcome home! There really is no place like home. Travelling is great but there is something about being curled up on your own couch.
    Pumpkin blondies sound wonderful!

  5. Myra

    Yum!! Love them both – but these blondies look amazing especially with pumpkin and chocolate, you can never go wrong with that combo 🙂
