Is it shocking that I’ve never made or eaten a blondie before? It’s really just a brownie but made with brown sugar to create that blonde color.
This is the other dessert I made. It was divine and I know I will make multiple more times in the future. They stole the show and I personally loved them which is saying a lot coming from a non-sweets lover.
These are my favorite m&ms! But I can only have a few before I get sick of them since I’m not a lover of sweets.
Aren’t they beautiful? One day I’ll take pretty pictures like this.
- 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 bag mini M&Ms (with a few reserved for the top)
- Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with cooking spray.
- Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until it browns and begins to smell nutty. Make sure not to burn it! Allow the butter to cool lightly.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the browned butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.
- Stir in eggs, vanilla, and salt.
- Add in flour and stir until just combined.
- Add in M&Ms and stir to combine.
- Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle a few additional M&Ms on top.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.
My final product is just as gorgeous.
Seriously, make and bring this to the next party. Adults and kids alike will love them.
Just make sure you have a very good knife to cut through those M&Ms. Plastic knives do not cut it (pun intended). I learned the hard way as I broke a plastic knife in half and one of my co-workers broke another one in thirds.
In Allie’s recipe, she had coconut shreds put in … but I’m not a big fan of coconut and was afraid some people might be allergic so I opted out of it.
