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

As an update to my review below.... If you're looking for an Applebee's warm maple butter sauce (like I was), the sauce in this recipe isn't it. The Applebee's version is:

1/2 c. butter (soft), 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 1/4 c. cream cheese (soft), 2 T. Maple Syrup, 1/4 tsp. salt. Cream together in microwavable bowl. Heat 30 seconds or so until just melted. Serve warm over ice cream and blondie. It's wonderful!!!!!!!!
