M&M Blondie Bars

I wanted something really easy to make for a meeting a couple weeks back. I didn’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen that day but I really wanted to bring something exciting to this meeting. So I looked through my archived recipes and found this exciting, classic recipe. I had even just purchased a bag of M&M baking pieces at the store recently so I was all set to make these.

These were actually extremely yummy! I took the extras to rehearsal after my meeting and everyone who tried them loved them. One person even commented that they were “heavenly”. I really didn’t think since a simple and easy recipe would get such rave reviews. This is the perfect recipe for entertaining since it makes such a large batch. This summer when you have guests over for a cookout this is one recipe you should try out.
