Mini M & M Blond Blondies

Mini M & M Blondies are made with just a few ingredients. The two main ingredients found in blondies, that make them special and distinguish them from their famous chocolate brownie relatives, is the butter and brown sugar. Whereas brownies rely on chocolate to make them so delicious, blondies are made with butter and brown sugar which give them their butterscotch undertones, that make them delicious.

“Add In”

Blondies can have as many “add in” ingredients as brownies can. Candy such as m & m’s, shredded coconut, dried or candied fruit, nuts, white chocolate chips, and toffee bits are just a few. This is a short “add in” ingredient list, since just about anything can be added. One of my favorite combinations to ” add to” blondies is white chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts. Another favorite is coconut and hazelnuts. Delicious!

Change Colors

You can easily make these blondies festive just by changing the color of the  m & m’s. M & M’s can be found in all colors that correspond with just about every holiday. Not only do m & m’s come in any color that you would find in a box of 64 crayons, they also come in new and delicious flavors. Coffee, cherry, white chocolate, pumpkin spice, mint, you name it and you can pretty much find an m & m in that flavor.

Few Staples

If you have butter and brown sugar in the house, along with a few other kitchen “staples,” you are well on your way to making a pan of blond blondies!! And what could possibly be better than a pan of buttery blondies. Like their chocolaty cousins, blondies are super delicious plain or with any number of ingredients mixed in. If you have never made a pan of blondies before, stop wondering what they taste like and make a batch. You’ll be so glad you did.
