M&M Blondies

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and saved in on my food board. I'm glad I did because we were invited to dinner at a friends house last minute and asked to bring dessert. I pulled up the recipe, whipped this up and was so excited how it turned out. For Valentines Day you can use pink and red M&Ms to make it more festive. This dessert is perfect with a couple scoops of your favorite ice cream. Most likely you have all the ingredients you need in your cupboard, so keep this recipe close for when you need a quick dessert.

Recipe (found recipe on Baked Perfection)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup to 1 1/3 cup M&M's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9" square pan.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, mix together the brown sugar and melted butter. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Slowly add the flour mixture until fully incorporated. Add 1 C of M&Ms and pour into baking pan. Sprinkly 1/3 C of M&Ms on top.
 Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the middle is down. I noticed that the sides finished a lot faster than the middle. So just watch you sides to make sure they don't become well done.

 How fun is this? I love color the M&Ms bring to the dish. It was super yummy and super easy to make.
