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.

      The Peanut butter is listed in the ingredients Laura. It’s the 4th item from the bottom of the list, between the eggs & the white chocolate.

    Hi, this looks delicious but the title says peanut butter. Just wondering if that is supposed to be in the M and Ms or if there is peanut butter added?

    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.
