Candy Corn M&M Blondies

Its been a few weeks, I know I can give every excuse in the book, I'll spare you from coming up with a few, like my dog ate my computer....yeah that one diffidently sounds plausible.  I haven't been neglecting my kitchen, trust me I have piles and piles of dishes in the sink to prove it.  I've just been neglecting my little blog.   Yes I've been busy, work is constant but still, I could have taken a few photos of something, but then I get home late and I sit on the couch for 2 seconds and it turns into 2 hours before I have to peel myself off and go to bed.  


But no more! fall is just right around the corner and there are too many awesome apple, squash, pumpkin recipes to share.  I love baking and cooking with fall flavors its part of the reason I love this season so much, its not just for the gorgeous foliage changing and the crisp cool sweater weather its also for all that delicious food.  Kinda like these blondies I wanted to share, I happen to discover candy corn m&m's at the store and immediately added a bag to my basket, didn't even have to think about buying them because I know I was going to make something tasty with these m&ms. 


The blondies are thick, soft and sweet.  The m&m's worked out wonderfully with the blondies instead of doing a chocolate brownie.  Plus it didn't hurt to add some more white chocolate chips to the batter. The batch will make a ton to share with friends, family or take to work, cause trust me you don't want to keep these around the house to long or you will keep circling the kitchen to grab another bite.

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.
2.  In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.
3.  Combined butter, brown sugar and sugar in a electric mixer. Mix on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
4.  Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the batter and mix on medium speed until the batter is smooth.
5.  Remove bowl from the mixer and add in your flour, mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.
6.  Stir in the m&ms and white chocolate chips.
7.  Pour batter into your greased pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  mine took the whole 30 minutes.
8.  Let the blondies cool completely and then cut into squares.

  7. I've got a batch in the oven now. The grand kids come for dinner here and then trick-or-treat together after. This is tonight's dessert to add to their sugar holiday sugar high. ;)

    PS - you forgot to include the 4 eggs in the recipe. Luckily I was able to go to Mama Miss to find out how many eggs were needed.
