Cinnamon S'more Blondies


I can't remember the last time we didn't have snow here. And I don't just mean on the ground.....I mean falling from the sky. It has been snowing daily for what feels like weeks now....so much that we can no longer distinguish our driveway from the rest of our yard or remember what the world looks like in color! I know that sounds dramatic, but if you could see out my windows right now you'd understand!

I'm not much of a snow person....or a cold person, for that matter....which is unfortunate since I live in Wisconsin! But winters in Wisconsin are uncomfortable - the below zero windchills, the slippery roads, the numb fingers and toes, the need to either stay inside or be bundled in 18 layers....

And so, every year around this time (February is the worst), I start thinking about summer. And tank tops. And sun. And cookouts. And cocktails. And firepits. And s'mores..... And since s'mores are tricky in winter, I decided I needed to figure out how to make them Wisconsin winter-friendly.

Okay....so the other part of the story is these marshmallows that have been staring me in the face every time I open my cupboard. I think I found them sometime after Christmas, and have been waiting for just the right way to use them.

Cinnamon s'mores! How fun!! Cinnamon s'more blondies....!? Even better.

I don't know about you, but I'm not so sure Punxsatawney Phil is right about an early spring. The way things are looking around here, winter will be holding on a LOT longer. More time for these bad boys, I guess... :)

  1. Gorgeous pictures, Cathy! And those look insanely delicious. Also. I'm with you. Winter can suck it.

    1. Lol! Thanks, Lisa. I'll be making more soon...my mom gave me the idea of "warm from the oven with whipped cream..." Mmmmmm :)

    2. Annnd.....you might be able to expect a plate of them showing up at your house. Payback for the pie :)

  3. These look delicious!! I am going to have to try them. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. Love the pictures too!


  4. Wow - why have I not seen these marshmallows? I love anything and everything with cinnamon.

  5. These look really wonderful. I have seen those marshmallows at the store and tried to think of a reason to buy them ... now I have a reason!

  6. Don't laugh, but I've never had a Blondie - EVER! The bf is always trying to get me to try his but for some reason or another I can't bring myself to do it. Those marshmallows on the other hand may push me into finally trying a Blondie.

  7. Thanks for another delicious recipe, Cathy!! Pinning!! Also... now following via GFC! :)

    Hope your day is off to a beautiful start!! :)

  20. Lol about the snow. It's the same for us too! We probably live in the same state, lol!

    These are looking so delicious right now. I could eat them (a whole batch) right now to tell you the truth :)

    Thanks for linking up at my weekend link party @The Weekend re-Treat!

  21. The recipe looks delicious, thanks for sharing. Toooo bad its so cold there in Wisconsin, wish I could share some of our Southern California sunshine with you, it was about 83 degrees here, (we're about 50 miles east of LA), had my windows and doors open to air the house out, but it will be cooling down in a couple days to around 68 degrees, thats when we all get out our warm clothes again. Anxious to make the blondies.

  22. Oh heavens those look so naughty and so good I have got to make them. Hope your snow slows down at least for awhile. We're pretty burned out on same old stuff so a new dessert recipe will be fantastic. Dessert, how about breakfast.
    Know how you feel gal. We moved from San Diego area to MT in 92 and it was a mighty cold winter, 25-45 below during the day for weeks. I used to go with my hubs who was a trucker. We hit Wisconsin, the Dakotas, MN many times in winter so know how cold it can be. I got an education about the Northern part of our country going with him. I like the cold, getting all geared up with parka, etc. Had to do that many a time to shovel snow at our place when he was gone. I was 52 when we moved to MT. What an education and culture shock but I learned what I was made of and could do on my own. We now live west of Grand Junction, CO, not as cold as long but we had our stint with it this winter. Over Christmas and New Years our furnace decided to go on vacation at one of coldest times. Thanks a bunch but we survived with electric heaters. I can remember being on our 20 acres in country with only 5% propane left in tank and no money for more for few days. Just one of those things you survive. I'd still move back there if we could.
