Chocolate Chip & Walnut Blondies

I've never made or eaten a blondie before. I just always thought that if it was square and dessert then it had to be a chocolate brownie. Heck, I thought that if it were dessert then no matter what shape or form it had to be chocolate. But on a whim last week I made blondies. And now I'm addicted. These are chewy and soft and the centers are juuuuust baked so even a day later they still taste like they're straight from the oven. And dare I say that I think they might be the perfect base for a brownie blondie sundae?
