M&M Blondies Recipe #BakingIdeas

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and its client.

It's no secret that I LOVE M&M's. One of my biggest posts involves them. I love how colorful they are and how many varieties there. I just love them. They are so great to use instead of chocolate chips because they really bring a dessert to life. You can make a cookie more colorful or turn them into Christmas cookies, just by using M&M's. I wanted to make some fun and colorful blondies. These are will be great for any time of year but especially great for the holidays coming up :). Great to bring to class parties, family gatherings or just to eat at home.

I got the plain M&M's from Walmart in the candy aisle.  It's great that they now have them in different sizes.  I got the regular medium size.  I especially love the plain M&M's and peanut M&M's.
This is what you'll need:
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional).  *Only add this if you like almond extract, if you don't omit it*
1/8 tsp kosher salt

Makes enough for an 8x8 pan (I 1 1/2 the recipe for my 8x10 pan).
