Sinfully Sweet Blondies–Karla Doyle



Adapted from my graphic designer’s recipe, these bars are insanely easy to prepare and taste out of this world. Change up the “add-ins” to suit your personal preferences.

• 1/2 cup butter, melted

• 1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed

• 1 egg, lightly beaten

• 1 tsp. vanilla

• 1/2 tsp. baking powder

• 1/8 tsp. baking soda

• 1 cup all-purpose flour

• Sprinkle of table salt

Add-ins (change these up to whatever tickles your fancy):

• 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips

• 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

• 1/4 cup white chocolate chips


• Sea salt, coarse


Melt butter, whisk in brown sugar, then beaten egg and vanilla.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to the wet mixture in thirds.

Stir in “Add-ins”. (Except white chocolate chips—keep reading for what to do with those.)

Pour into a lightly greased 8×8” baking dish.

Sprinkle white chocolate chips on top and press gently into the mixture.

Bake at 350°F for 20-28 minutes, until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

As soon as you remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle the top with sea salt. (Really, don’t skip this step—the salty/sweet combo is amazing.)

Allow to cool and cut into squares.

Share at your own discretion. 😉



Recently divorced after seventeen years with a snooty, uptight, controlling man, forty-year-old Andie is definitely ready for some casual, sexy fun when a hot younger man “accidentally” hits her with a baseball. Mason’s interest is clear and he looks like a lot more fun than her overworked vibrator collection, so she goes for it, despite the obvious age gap. The young veterinarian is as easy to be with as he is on the eyes, making him an ideal summer diversion and the perfect man to help her make up for lost time and missed orgasms.

Mason had to meet the sexy woman at the ball diamond. The chemistry between them is instant and completely addictive. Andie is more than beautiful, she’s uninhibited and independent—totally unlike the needy twenty-somethings he’s been dating since his ex-fiancée deceived him five years ago. And yeah, Andie is ten years older than him, big deal. The more they’re together, the more his heart wants her as badly as his cock. Too bad Andie isn’t playing for keeps.
