A softly spiced blondie under a mound of vanilla bean ice cream. Yes, that desert screams romance.

Spicy ginger by Gourmet Garden and sweet orange with a hint of cardamom are laced in the blondie and topped with ginger infused sugar crystals, to create a taste you won’t forget and a dessert your honey will thank you for. Drizzled with a sweet chocolate shell created from Spicely Organics caramel infused chocolate, this is one memorably romantic dessert.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted 2 inches from the edge comes out clean. Cut the blondies into nine squares and serve each with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. To make the chocolate drizzle, place 2 tablespoons of Spicely Organics chocolate in a Ziploc bag with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. Microwave for 2o second intervals until chocolate is melted, squishing with your fingers in between. Cut a small corner of the Ziploc bag and squeeze over ice cream. Serve immediately.
