I have a confession.  I have NO willpower.  There was a giant bag of mini eggs sitting in the cupboard and I could not leave them alone.  I tried.  I tried everything.  I moved them, I pretended they weren’t there, calling my name.  I thought about the amount of calories I was inhaling.  There was nothing I could do, I was broken under the incredible force of the delicious, mouth watering, crunchy, chocolatey mini egg.

Finally I had to beg Mr. to finish them before I needed to be rolled out the front door.  It’s almost embarrassing, almost but I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who can resist the power of the Mini Egg.  Thank goodness I only by them once a year.

Another thing I have absolutely no resistance to is Cookie Butter.  I eat it by the spoonful.  I don’t even pretend to put it on anything. Just straight from the jar.  I have bought so many jars with the intention of baking something and then before I could do anything with it I was at the bottom of the jar.

Finally, I bought a jar of crunchy Cookie Butter and decided to make these fabulous blondies with it before I had a chance to consume the entire jar, yet again.  I also added crushed cookies to the blondies to give them a little extra flavor and to play off the crunchy factor.

Then I had to add these to the list of things I am powerless against.  The list is getting long, very, very long.

    I do the EXACT same thing. That’s why I didn’t buy mini eggs this year, no matter how cheap they were after Easter :p
    Now these blondies look delicious! I definitely need to make this soon!
