    This is a really cute idea, looks very tasty. Makes me wish I was not on a weight loss diet!

    Here's a link to the explanation of how this blondie turns "dog cake."

    I thought this recipe was awful-- way too much flour which made them too dry and not chewy at all. I think they would taste better with dark brown sugar instead of light. I won't make these again!

    I am intrigued by the picture too, I wonder if they made a pan of regular blondies, and also a pan of regular brownies, they they cut out the figure with a large cookie cutter in the shape of the dog, if they then carefully lifted and swapped the cut outs I think it would look like this. Thats my guess!! The dog bones could be cut out as well from another pan with cookie cutters.

    Is it Blondie on top of Brownie?

    super cool idea, but the recipe has no relationship to the photo. Come on tell us how you did that and what all the different layers are!

    How do you create the different colored layers, the dog outline on top and the dog biscuits?

    These are so easy to make and really great. Chocolate chips would be too much. They're perfect as they are.
