Easter is only a week and a half away! It’s almost the end of March and I still can’t believe that we are in the year 2013. I swear the days and hours are flying by so quickly and I just want to YELL stop! Spring just started and I’m still left here wondering where Winter was this year. I know most of the states are still getting packed with snow but we saw none of that here in Houston. Oh well better luck this next year!
Now on to these M&M Blondies…..
I can’t believe I am openly admitting this but I have NEVER made blondies. You can tell from this blog that I make a ton of cookies but never ventured to the blondie side. Some may ask why is it called a “blondie?’ They are basically a blonde brownie without the chocolate. However if you are like me I tried to incorporate a little chocolate by adding the white chocolate morsels. I NEEDED to incorporate it somehow. Chocolate makes everything better even blondies!
I am officially sold on these. I can’t wait to make more and try out different variations. It really makes a difference with the browned butter.
Add butter to a medium size sauce pan over low/medium heat. Stir constantly until the butter has melted then remove from heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until it is well coated. Set aside until it becomes room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs and vanilla. Then add the butter and brown sugar mixture.
Slowly add the flour, salt and baking powder. Whisk until everything is combined.
Stir in the m&m candies and chocolate chip morsels.
Line a 8X8 baking pan with parchment paper and drop the mixture into the pan. (It may seem thick so you will have to work with it to go all around the pan.)
Cook for 30-35 minutes and then remove. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before cutting into pan.
