Valentine's Day Brown Sugar Blondies

 

Valentine’s Day Brown Sugar Blondies
from Baked Perfection

Ingredients
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&M’s (the special Valentine ones – red, pink, and white)

Optional (I added these): vanilla candy melt and festive sprinkles

What To Do
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and set aside. Melt 1/3 cup butter. Add 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar and mix well. Cool slightly. Add egg (beaten) and vanilla and blend well. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing well. Mix in 2/3 cup M&M’s. Spread in 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Sprinkle 1/3 to 2/3 cup M&M’s on top. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Optional Topping: melt some vanilla candy melt (or white chocolate chips) according to package directions.  Drizzle over cooled blondies and then sprinkle with sprinkles before it sets.

My Comments
I think the M-n-M’s on top are supposed to stay on top, but every time I’ve made these, they sink into the batter while baking so that’s why I put the topping on.

You can adapt these for any holiday because I’m pretty sure special M-n-M’s are made for most holidays and I know there are many many many many kinds of festive sprinkles out there.

 

These cute little treats are sure to bring a smile to anyone you share them with so I encourage you to show some love this Valentine’s Day by making and sharing some Valentine’s Day Brown Sugar Blondies.  You’ll smile too!
