The Ultimate Date Night Dessert

As a special treat, I like to have something sweet after a weekend dinner.
I was recently asking John for requests, and I just about died when he suggested blondies.

I love a brownie, but I love a blondie!
And these brown sugar M&M blondies were uh-mazing!

The best part? This recipe makes the perfect amount... 
Enough to go big, but not too much that you're stuck with blondies for a week!


What you need:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 1/8 tsp of baking soda
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 4 tbs of butter
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup of mini M&Ms


How to:
1. Melt the butter and mix with the brown sugar.
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
3. Slowly mix in the remaining dry ingredients and fold in the M&Ms.
4. Pour batter into a greased 9x9 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.


Once the blondies are done baking, dig in as fast as possible - they honestly melt in your mouth when served warm!  Or, if you can't get to them while they are fresh out of the oven, just pop a square the microwave for 20 seconds.

 
 


Serve with a bit of ice cream, and watch out - you will likely eat the whole pan!!  
(I may, or may not, be speaking from experience...)

  23. I'm pretty sure I made this exact recipe for T once and he loved them. I tried to re-do and it wasn't as successful. I'll definitely be needing to try out your recipe since it looks so yummy..I'm sure T will thank you for reviving this recipe.
