Blondie Brownies with Icing

Tuesday? My last post was Tuesday? Just where have I been? I really don’t know. I do know that one day my internet did not work. Does that count? Well, I guess I could give lots of excuses, but really I have just had an equal combination of being busy decorating the house and too tired to bake. But enough about me...
I love a good blondie brownie. It is something about brown sugar. Hmmmm, good. These particular blondies are easy to make and taste like liquid brown sugar. The icing is so good that I am going to have to use it on something else. It has more body to it than your normal powder sugar icing. Plus, no need to get out the mixer. You can simply stir these up by hand with your utensil of choice. The batter looks like a praline when all combined.
The creator of this recipe must have had a very hot oven. This is not the first recipe that I have made by her. So, my guess is her oven was too hot or she likes really gooey baked goods. My oven is a true-temp oven and 20 minutes was not long enough. I would go with 25 minutes unless you like to eat your brownies with a spoon. Your decision.

Blondie Brownies
2/3 cup butter, melted
1 ½ cup packed brown sugar
