I have only had blondies a few times until I decided to make my own. I think these may be my newest favorite treat! The other day I was at the food store roaming around the candy isle looking at what candies I wanted to put in my bars I was going to make later that day. I decided on birthday cake m&m’s! They really aren’t much different than regular m&m’s, just a bit sweeter and they are huge! In my recipe, I used 1 cup only because they are so big, but if you are using regular sized m&m’s I would use a bit more, maybe 1 1/4 cups or just use how much you want.
This recipe calls for only brown sugar, which means they are incredibly chewy. Usually in cookies, a higher ratio of brown sugar to white makes them chewier, soft, and moist – it does the same for blondies. Also, the melted butter in them makes them even more chewy! This batter literally comes together in minutes and goes from one bowl-to-oven-to-mouth in about 30 minutes. No mixer required! Talk about fast and easy.
These are perfect for customization. You can put literally any kind of candy in them. So, if you don’t like m&m’s or chocolate chips (who doesn’t like m&m’s and chocolate chips?!) thats fine! Go ahead and use any of your favorite candies.
They are so rich and decadent and the brown sugar gives off such a perfect caramel flavor, these are just prefect bars that everyone will love! My mom actually claimed these and said that they’re hers and nobody was allowed to touch them. Ha! (Of course nobody listened. :-P)
