Red, White & Blue Blondies
These blondies are festive and delicious but oh so easy to make. Freeze-dried berries add a pop of patriotic color, and the taste of summer sunshine, and the white chocolate makes them extra special. White Chocolate icing is the perfect backdrop for an American flag mapped out in fresh berries and gold food sparkle shines as stars on the flag.
