Bountiful Brownies & Blondies

In honor of February being the chocolate filled month, my friends & I got together to swap brownies & blondies! The premise is the same as traditional holiday cookie swap. Everyone comes with a large batch of brownies or blondies, sharing them with each other and we all leave with one brownie/blondie of each kind. These are great to share with family, friends, coworkers, etc.
Here are pics of what I served to snack on before swapping:
Spinach Dip w/Toasted Brioche
Black Forest Ham, Scallion & Goat Cheese Pizza

Here are pics and some of the recipes of the brownies & blondies that were brought to the swap:
