Wow! These turned out better than I thought! They are so good and tasty and will definitely satisfy any sweet tooth or sugar craving. The only issue I have with them is I want to eat them all! I had 2 as soon as I was done taking pictures and I had to control myself not to eat another one. So, come on! Let’s go make these delicious bars…

What you will need:

9 inch square baking dish, greased and lined with parchment paper (leaving some overhang for easy removal)

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup white chocolate chips
Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter until just beginning to brown, stirring constantly. Allow to cool down a bit.

In another bowl, beat together browned butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Add in eggs and beat until combined. Slowly add in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in white chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before pulling out by the parchment paper. Cool completely. Once cooled, dust powdered sugar on top. Cut into squares, serve and enjoy!

Makes 16 blondies. Store in an airtight container at room temp.

M&M Blondies

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 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup M&M’s
Tip:Β Since these are BLONDies, feel free to add some white chocolate chips as well. I would have, but didn’t have any πŸ˜‰

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!
