M&M Blonde Brownies

The perfect snack when you want something sweet but not overly chocolatey, if that's a thing!

Okay, so I don't know why I didn't realize it before but the name for the dessert blondies comes from combining blonde and brownies. Not sure how on earth I missed that! I just accepted blondies as the name for bars that were not brownies without thinking about it being a combination of words. I love blondies (and brownies alike) and I really enjoy M&Ms as an addition to them. I feel like all my favorites are ones with M&Ms in them. This is a very basic, classic recipe and super easy to make. It's great when you have a craving for something sweet.

What you need:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups M&Ms, divided
  1. Beat butter and brown sugar together until creamy.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
  3. Add salt, baking powder, and flour and slowly mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in 1 cup M&Ms.
  5. Spread batter into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 cup M&Ms.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 24 to 28 minutes.
  7. Let cool before cutting.

The last recipe for blondies that I posted is for Maple Walnut Blondies - and while I did not like them because I don't care for maple, my family loved them and they are a complete pivot from including chocolate in blondies. If you are wanting more chocolate with M&Ms, these Peanut Butter M&M Brownies from Buns In My Oven are soooo good looking!
