I love a treat that is easily customizable, and blondies may be the best example of this. Chocolate chips? Sure. Peanut butter swirls? Yup. Coconut flakes? Why not! You can pretty much put anything into a sweet little blondie and know it’ll go well. This week I went with M&M’s — these are a great, delicious, and EASY treat to add some more pastels to your Easter table! This recipe is practically impossible to mess up 🙂
You will need:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar (I used light because it’s what I had on hand, but feel free to use dark for some added sweetness!)
1 egg 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
Optional: 1 cup of your add in(s) of choice
With my brother (and his nice camera) in town, I decided to actually take a jab at real pictures and not just use my iPhone as usual, so enjoy a rare case of actual pictures!
Preheat your oven to 350, and grease a brownie pan. Start off combining your melted butter and brown sugar. Add your egg and vanilla and mix. Combine flour with wet mixture completely. Fold in your add ins. Doesn’t get much easier than that, right? Pour into your brownie pan and spread evenly, then bake for about 20-25 minutes, until corners are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out fairly clean. Allow to cool and slice ’em up!
