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!

A stack of brown sugar blondies with pink, white, and red m and m's sit beside a glass of milk with a red and white striped straw and another brownie and a white pan of brownies.

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.

  1. I still have never made a blondie…oh but it is so hard to resist brown sugar – maybe this weekend will be my first time!

  2. Yum yum! I discovered blondies a couple summers ago and loved them, but havent made them since. your recipe and pictures definitely make me want to make them again!

  3. 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!!
