Spread the love with these pretty Valentine M&M Blondies!
If you didn’t know it already, I love the color pink. And anytime I can incorporate any variation of this sweet color into my baking, I do (as you may have noticed a bit of pink on this blog).
And to me, Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to go all out with pink!
I know some of you are all about red for this day for lovers, but for me, pink steals my heart every the time.
So today, I have taken one of my all-time favorite recipes, blondies, and added some pretty little M&M’s to make these especially scrumptious Valentine’s treats!
This recipe is super easy and super delish! You start with a rich buttery base and toss in the sweet pink chocolate candy bits, and voila, you’ve got Valentine M&M Blondies to share with your loved ones!
It’s true…from the first bite of these heavenly squares, love will strike and they will cherish you forever!
Valentine M&M Blondies
By: Sheila | Sweet Baked Life
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups Valentine M&M Candies
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 11×7-inch pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir until combined. Set aside until ready to use.
In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until combined (about 2 minutes). Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then beat in the vanilla.
On low-speed, slowly add the flour and mix until just combined. Remove from stand and fold in the M&M’s. Batter will be thick.
Spread batter in prepared pan and smooth top with a spatula. Put in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top has turned golden brown and the blondies are set. Do not over bake.
Cool the blondies in the pan on a wire rack until cool. Cut into large squares. Yield 12 large squares.
Pretty, pink and perfectly delicious, these Valentine M&M Blondies will make cupid’s job a whole lot easier!
Have a sweet day!
