Blondes always have more fun. But with a tinge of orange, they’d look a lot more like the wild child they claim to be. Featuring pure, organic pumpkin puree, these blondies have the flare you’d expect from such a lively bunch. If the rich color doesn’t wow you, though, the pie-high flavor will certainly get your mouth to drop. Add chunks of dark chocolate, and you’re in for a good time!
