White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M and M Blondies
A combination of a chewy blondie and moist butter cake, these White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M&M Blondies are studded with white chocolate chips, peanut butter, and mini M&M’s!
Some exciting things happened yesterday: my blog turned two years old, it was the one year anniversary of the hubby and I moving into our very first house, and my countdown to Christmas finally hit double digits (please don’t hate me for saying this…but only 98 days left!). It was a great day overall. Thank you all ever so much for your kind words for my “blogiversary”….I really appreciate each and every comment! You guys are the greatest. That’s why I’m bringing you these White Chocolate M&M Blondies today. You can thank me later.
Yes, I have more blondies to share with you today. If you missed the ones I posted last week, here they are: Cake Batter Blondies. I don’t even know if I could choose between the two, but honestly, I think these might just be my new favorite blondies. You can be the judge.
These babies also have white chocolate chips in them but, in addition, have peanut butter and mini M&M’s. They are pure awesomeness. Why do mini things make things look cute? I don’t know… but it’s true. I love baking with M&Ms, in general. They add such a pop of color and of course, they taste great.
If you’re allergic to peanuts, you can always substitute Biscoff spread or any other nut butter that you can tolerate for the peanut butter. Have fun and be creative. Enjoy your Wednesday!
