Blond Brownies a la Mode Recipe

We have a lot of church socials and I'm always looking for something new and different to prepare. These brownies, drizzled with a sweet maple sauce, are a sure hit…with or without the ice cream. —Pat Parker, Chester, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:20 servings
