Robin Egg Blondies Recipe
Looking for a fun treat to serve for Easter that isn’t difficult to make? Mini Robin Eggs are very popular – almost everybody loves malt balls – and they can be used in these colorful, chewy, and delicious bars. These bars are perfect for an Easter dessert buffet, or even just a cute and unique snack for both children and adults.
A bonus is that these bars can be made ahead and will keep a week or so without losing their chewy texture.
