Brown Sugar Blondies

I love blondies of any form.  They are chewy and delicious!  These were so quick and easy to put together and the family absolutely loved them!  I thought they turned out pretty cute with a little Valentine M&M’s added to them.  They didn’t last long in our house that is for sure!

Rating: 4 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 1 star
Review:  I really did love how easy these were.  They were gone so fast that I might double the recipe next time and make them in a 9×13.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup to 1 1/3 cup M&Ms

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.
2. Melt 1/3 cup butter.  Cool slightly.  In a mixer or seperate bowl, add the butter to 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar and mix well.  Add the egg (beaten) and vanilla and mix well.
3. Add the flour mixture a little at a time and mix well.  Mix in 2/3 cup M&M’s.  
4.  Spread in a greased 9x9x2 inch pan.  Spinkle 1/3 to 2/3 cup M&M’s on the top.
5.  Bake for 20-35 minutes.

  10. These looked so good I had to add them to my brown sugar recipe round up today. Thank you!!!

  11. Tried recipe yesterday…tastes great but my M&M’s sank to bottom

  12. I really enjoy this recipe! Made it today and it was so ooey gooey and yummy. My one issue was the amount of vanilla. I reduced it to 3/4 TB thinking a full TB would be too much. Even with my reduced amount, I can still taste the vanilla, so next time I’ll reduce to 1 or 1/2 tsp. Still love these festive blondies!!
