Are you a cookie, cake, brownie, cupcake, pie or blondie fan? What was that…your a fan of all them? Oh wait, sorry that was me…I LOVE ALL DESSERT!! Many times I have a very hard time deciding, but last week I was craving some blondies…and I decided to load them up with some Fall flair making them perfect for the season.
A favorite of The Hubby’s
The Hubby loves cookies and brownies, amazing blondies a favorite by default. They have the crunch of a great cookie and the center of a perfect brownie…making them pretty perfect according to The Hubby.
Last week I was craving blondies but I wanted to make them a little more special…something for Fall. I just love the all the colors that Fall has to offer and I really love the Fall M&M’s. Just like that my loaded blondies were born with a little fall flair.
Make it your own
For this round of blondies I used Oreo’s (one of my favorites) and Fall M&M’s. I mean just look at those colors of the M&M’s…so perfect for everything Fall. Don’t worry though if you don’t have Oreo’s or M&M’s on hand you can still make these blondies.
You could use graham crackers, nilla wafers, store bought chocolate chip cookies…really any cookie you have on hand. Even better if you have some homemade one’s laying around throw those in.
As for the candy any bite size candy would work. Peanut butter cups, Rolo’s, snickers…the possibilities truly are endless. Even better if you still have some leftover Halloween candy that you are hiding from kids…throw that in. Not only will it be delicious but you can also use up the candy.
1 cup peanut butter chips (or your favorite flavor)
3/4 cup M & M's (or any candy you prefer)
Preheat oven to 350
Line a 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, set aside
In a large microwave safe bowl melt butter
Let butter cool slightly
Whisk in egg, sugar and vanilla until smooth
Stir in flour and salt until just combined
Gently fold in oreo cookies, peanut butter chips and 1/2 of the M&M's
Pour batter into prepared pan
Sprinkle remaining M&M's over the top and gently press into batter
Place into oven and bake for 20-24 minutes, or until top is golden brown
Remove and let chill for 5 minutes in the pan and them move to a cooling rack to cool completely
Slice and serve
