Summer in New England is definitely my favorite time of the year. In order to enjoy this season as much as possible, this past Sunday we organized a little picnic by the lake. Good friends, beautiful weather and yummy snacks were the perfect ingredients for a great day. I made some blondies for the occasion, and they were fantastic! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and Heath toffee bits instead of white chocolate chips. You can use anything you want: butterscotch chips, pecans, walnuts, etc. Be creative and enjoy!
