Have too much Easter candy left over? I did. Every time I went to the kitchen, I grabbed a handful of M&M’s. So, I decided to bake something with them! These are very similar to the other M&M cookie bars I made, but I personally like these better. I used a smaller bake dish and took them out of the oven earlier so they are softer. So, let’s get to baking…
What you will need:
8×8 inch square baking pan, greased
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup M&M’s
Tip: Since these are BLONDies, feel free to add some white chocolate chips as well. I would have, but didn’t have any 😉
Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together butter and both sugars. Add egg and vanilla and whisk until combined. Stir in flour mixture. Fold in M&M’s.
Pour into greased pan. Even out the dough with your fingers. Bake for 17-20 minutes until the edges are just beginning to brown. Let cool completely before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
