Growing up in the US, and celebrating my birthday on the 3rd of July, The 4th of July has always been a 2 day celebration.

One of our family traditions was to make my favorite brownie recipe. Mom called them Blonde Brownies, but my sister and I always just called them Chocolate Chip Squares.

They remind me of summer, my birthday, the 4th of July and fireworks.
And now I’d like to share them with you.

And if you’re reading this from the US Happy 4th of July!
