These soft, chewy M&M Blonde Brownies are a fun snack any time of day. Try packing them into your kid’s lunch boxes or snacking on them after school with a glass of milk.
Today I am slightly dragging a little. I have discovered that boys are much louder than girls. And by boys, I really mean grown men.
Last night my hubby had game night at our house. Seriously I think 5 grown men huddled around a board game are much louder than any group of women for sure. Loud voices and laughing do not make going to sleep very easy.
Usually they set up the game in the basement, but last night it was upstairs in the dining room. Of course, it was the room without carpet, so it just echoed through out the entire house. I did stay up for a bit doing some computer work in the office.
All I heard was laughing and talking about which army was going to destroy the rest. I finally waved the white flag and went to bed even though they were still going strong on their game at midnight. Thank goodness the closed door blocked some of the sound.
My thinking is that if they are busy shoving sweets in their mouth, they can’t laugh and shout at the game plays.
Baking Blonde Brownies
These chewy blonde brownies are one of my favorite treats. I almost always under bake mine slightly because I like the soft, chewy texture. Feel free to add a few minutes to the time if you like blonde brownies that are a little more done.
Just be careful and watch them closely as they bake. It is easy to over bake these bars.
The blonde brownies will look undone when you pull them out of the oven, but they will set up as they cool. If you bake them too much, they will be hard when you cut into them later.
Making M&M Blonde Brownies
Make sure you set out your butter ahead of time. Soft room temperature butter is much easier to beat into the sugar.
Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs and beat the mixture again. Do not over mix the mixture at any point because that can make the top crunchy and crackly. Which is not really a bad thing, but it does change the texture. I prefer the tops of my blonde brownies soft and chewy.
Stir in the baking powder and flour until you get a thick cookie dough.
Now comes for the fun part. It’s time for adding your mix-ins. Obviously, this batch got loads of M&M candies. Feel free to use miniatures or regular M&M’s. You could also do cookies, nuts, or sprinkles.
I love changing up the colors of the candies for different holidays. The rainbow of colors from the candies is so pretty when you cut into the M&M bars. Feel free to use any other candy in place of these candies.
Store the blondies in a sealed container. They will stay softer longer if you keep them from getting dried out. Of course, if your family is anything like mine there will not be very many M&M Blonde Brownies to deal with.
