White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M & M Blondies

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!

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.

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 for the peanut butter.  Enjoy your Wednesday!

White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M & M Blondies Recipe

White Chocolate, Peanut Butter M & M Blondies Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (additional to the 3/4 cup above)
1/4 cup mini M and M’s

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8×8 inch baking dish with parchment paper sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

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.

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 the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly then gently press the mini M and M’s over top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until cooked through.  Mine were done right at 30 minutes.

    I’ve made a blondie once and while I loved it, it didn’t come out nearly as thick as yours which I love! Can’t go wrong with PB and M&Ms, yum.
    Wow, so many wonderful things…congrats again on your 2 year blog anniversary!
    Congrats on your 1 year anniversary for being in your house! My hubby and I have been in our first house for 14 months, so pretty close to you.
    Countdown to Christmas already?! Cute. :) I haven’t been counting but I’m guilty of already thinking about what cookies I want to bake for the season. Hehe.

      Thanks, Tina! They did turn out nice and thick, I was happy!

    Looks yum. I kids would try and pick all of the m&m’s right off the top!

    Congrats on your 1 year house anniversary… cool! I love how the m&m’s make these blondies so colorful. Plus I’ve been craving m&m’s so badly… particularly the peanut butter kind.

    Yay to your 1 year house anniversary. I’m celebrating my 1 year house anniversary next month! :) It’s also our first home. Don’t you just love being a homeowner? It’s different than being a renter.

    These blondies are a great way to celebrate! And I always welcome more blondie recipes as I just LOVE them! :) These look delicious! I love the colorful M&Ms on top. So festive! :)

    Happy Birthday Wishes & Dishes!!! My husband will love these so I will be making them tomorrow as I have all the ingredients on hand. The only substitute will be regular size M&M’s instead of mini’s.

      Regular size will work just fine! Thanks, Erica :)

    Ashley,
    Seriously, is there anything that isn’t made great with any of these three main ingredients?! White chocolate, peanut butter, and M&Ms are all big hitters in my book!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe and congrats on another great post!!
