Did you know today is National “Blondie” Day? Sorry, Debbie Harry, I wasn’t referring to you! 😉 For a chocolate lover like yours truly, I don’t ever need a designated day to enjoy chocolate…but who am I to argue with a Nationally recognized day to honor my favorite guilty-pleasure?! Chocolate you say??? Yeah, I’m all for it!
The best part of this recipe is that it can be made with or without flour, so if someone you love is “GF” (gluten-free) you can still enjoy this treat together!
