How to Make Blondies

  2. Place butter into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30-45 seconds until butter is melted and hot. Add 3/4 cup white chips and let sit for 1 minute. Stir until smooth, if needed place back in microwave for an additional 15-30 seconds to melt through.
  3. Place flour, sugar, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Stir in 1/2 cup white chips then add eggs, peanut butter and melted white chocolate. Stir until well combined. Transfer to prepared baking dish, spreading evenly then gently press M and M’s over top.

Top with some pretty little mini M&M’s. Regular size will work if you can’t find the mini’s.

What Is The Difference of a Blondie and Brownie?

Blondies and brownies have a few things in common.  Both have eggs, flour, sugar and butter in their list of ingredients. They also both have a fudgy texture and are generally cut into bars.

They can can have “add ins” to the ingredients list, such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips, candies etc.

The whole texture of blondies and brownies falls somewhere in between a cookie and a cake.

The color Differences

When you look at a tray of the two bars, blondies are lighter in color than brownies.

Tips For Making The BEST Blondies

  1. Melt butter and add brown sugar while the butter is still warm. Make sure to cool this mixture.  Let other ingredients, particularly eggs, come up to room temperature before you add them. You don’t want to add your eggs to hot butter and sugar or you’ll risk scrambling the eggs. Don’t overmix blondies; mix by hand instead of mixer for best results.

    I think my husband would rather have me pull his teeth out than make him watch Legally Blonde. I think he’d love to eat these blondies, though. Especially since he loves white chocolate.

    I bet they’d be great with all of the fun fall flavored M&Ms too!

    Joyce Morse says:

    I made the White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M and M Blondies a week ago for a group meeting and it turned out to be a disappointment. The blondies baked slightly longer than the 35 minute maximum time, and was very soft to the touch & eyesight. It juggled like Jell-o in the center, and it sank as I took it out of the oven.

    Ileft it at home & I’ve been chipping away at it bit by bit for the past week now. Refrigeration keeps it fresh & it’s tasting better each day. It’s almost finished, and although it was a disappointment, I will make it again, but next time make some alterations to lengthen the bake time so it will look like the blondies in the picture. I don’t know if or where I went wrong with the recipe, but I will definitely be making this again, with adjustments.

    I heard first about white chocolate peanut better like to taste of it.
