White Chocolate Cashew Blondies with Butterscotch Ganache

Are you ready for these? If I was going to pick one flavor that just might out do would be butterscotch! I have a love for butterscotch like I can't even explain! If you think I might be on!
These are white chocolate cashew blondies...and yes they are very mouthwatering!

Alright alright! Let's get started!
Start with your butter and sugar or course!
Then add eggs, followed by flour, baking powder and salt
Then add in white chocolate chips/chunks and cashew peices!
After all mixed, press into well greased pan!

Bake at 350 about 25 minutes or until your house smells divine and it looks sumthin like this
Then for the ganache, melt butterscotch chips, lil bit of butter and heavy cream. While it cools, cut your blondies into bars. Let ganache cool but still be pourable and drizzle all over these babies! Then they look...
Oh so yummy! I ate WAAAAAAAYYYY to many considering swim suit season is so almost here! No worries...they were worth it! :)
