M&M Blondies

I made this recipe last fall for a football party. I love blondie brownies and this was a very simple from-scratch recipe. What's great is that I pretty much had everything in my pantry, so it's something you can whip up rather quickly without needing to stop off at the store for extra ingredients (or a box mix!). Please note that this recipe was modified from a recipe on The Little Kitchen.

M&M Blondies


·         3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
·         1 large egg
·         2 tsp vanilla extract
·         8 Tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
·         1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
·         1/2 tsp baking soda
·         1/8 tsp salt
·         3/4 cup M&Ms, chopped

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Take an 8-inch square pan and cover in foil and spray with baking spray.
Using an electric mixer, cream brown sugar and egg until it's light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and melted butter, mix well with electric mixer.
In a separate bowl, mix together with a rubber spatula the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture in batches and incorporate with a rubber spatula. Be careful not to over mix your batter.
Stir in M&Ms, using rubber spatula. Again, do not over mix. Add batter to pan. Spray an angled spatula with baking spray and use it to smooth over the top.
Bake for about 25-28 minutes. The top will be dry and flaky and a toothpick test should come out clean with a few crumbs attached. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes on a wire rack. Hold using foil sides and remove from square pan. Enjoy!
