You could say I’ve been into M&M’s lately. First it was Nutella Brownie Easter Egg Nests with M&M’s Speck-tacular Eggs (I always feel funny spelling that out) and now it’s Easter M&M’s Blondies. I think it’s the colors; I’m so ready for spring, and how can you not love all the colors popping out everywhere?
Recently, dessert’s been looking different for me. I’ve always been a Chocolate Chip Cookie girl, and ever since I found my favorite cookie recipe, it’s been cookies for dessert pretty much all. the. time. Hooked. But now, I’m starting to move past that, making all kinds of fun things like Mint Oreo Brownies and Strawberry Bundt Cakes (actually, that second one was breakfast… woops). I feel kind of liberated though, like the dessert world has opened up to me and the possibilities are endless. That means, by the way, you can expect to see more dessert recipes coming up, hint hint.
Desserts can get crazy, but today we’re going with a classic: blondies. Sort of a mix between a brownie and a cookie, more brownie-like in texture but more cookie-like in flavor – I can work with that. ;) But of course, I mixed things up a bit, switching the traditional chocolate chips to M&M’s, drizzling Hershey’s Milk Chocolate on top, and adding an extra sprinkle of M&M’s to finish it all off. It’s like heaven for milk chocolate and candy lovers alike, and even though I’m really neither of the above, I loved these. They were soft and chewy, with that signature caramel-y brown sugar flavor that makes a blondie a blondie. SO GOOD.
Add those crunchy M&M’s and sweet milk chocolate and, what can I say? When it works, it works.
You can find the recipe for these blondies over at Best Friends For Frosting, where I contribute a dessert recipe once a month. Let me know if you try them out!
Want another M&M recipe? I’m loving these Nutella Brownie Easter Egg Nests.
These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars were another one of my BFFF contributions, and even though they’re not technically blondies, they’re along the same wavelength and an awesome Peanut Butter-y treat.
