Have you ever needed to whip up a delicious, homemade dessert/treat in a pinch? This is the recipe to have in your recipe box because it is so quick & easy & contains ingredients most people always have in their pantry anyway. You could even exchange the M&Ms for something else (chocolate chips, nuts, or even make a glaze to drizzle over the top out of simple ingredients). On occasion I use sprinkles instead to make my confetti blondies! The options are endless, so choose whatever you have or whatever you would enjoy the most!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (optional)
- 2 eggs
- 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cups M&Ms (however many you want!)
- 8×8 inch pan
- Parchment paper
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat your butter until creamy and pale.
One at a time add your sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
Then slowly incorporate your dry ingredients.
Fold in your M&Ms.
Line your pan with parchment paper and spread out your mixture.
Sprinkle more M&Ms on the top.
Bake at 325 degrees for roughly 40 minutes.Cool before cutting into 16 squares. Enjoy!
