    I hunt around in candy boxes for the dark chocolate covered coconut piece…these sound like my kind of blondie. I never would have thought to add the cashews, you hardly ever hear about them in baked stuff, but it sounds like an inspired choice. Nice close-up!

    You are such a nice friend:-). I'm sure your friend appreciates you making these! They sound yummy. I love coconut, but my husband doesn't for whatever reason. Like the cashews in this,too – very different combo!
