Apple Blondies with brown sugar frosting

        I have made brownies before. But when I made this one , I just fell in love with the chewy,fudgy texture and the bitter taste of the chocolate brownies. I browsed a lot of recipes for bars and brownies, bookmarked them, even made a few and waiting to bake more of them.What next, I went to the local library and borrowed a few books on brownies. So this was a recipe from one of those books . Well ok, for people who are not aware, blondies are very similar to brownies. The texture of blondies is just fudgy and chewy like those of brownies. While brownies uses chocolates , this one uses brown sugar for the taste. Thats the only difference. So this was a delicious one and I just made minor differences, which I have mentioned in the recipe.So do try and enjoy them with the frosting .
