Deliciously Sweet White Chocolate and Cherry Blondies

Blondies are awesome, right? A sweet chocolately slice with a burst of fresh cherries – even better!

I’ve been very, very slack lately with putting recipes up here. I could blame lots of different things – working extra days, looking after my 2 boys, being pregnant with bub #3 and the associated tiredness ……. But I won’t. I’ve just been lazy.

It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been cooking though. I’ve got a few things backlogged, so expect a few more recipes in the coming days. Even though cherries are no longer available here in Australia this is still a great recipe to bookmark, for when they come back later in the year. It’s perfect for Christmas entertaining and won’t disappoint.
