Valentine’s Day Brown Sugar Blondies

Valentine’s Day is still a few weeks away, but it’s never too early to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, so I deicided to make Valentine’s Day Blondies. Blondies are best described as vanilla, brown sugar bars with a texture and shape similar to brownies. I actually think they taste like a thick chocolate chip cookie! IMG_6034 To make these blondies festive for Valentine’s Day, they are topped off with pink and red M&M’s. You can also use chocolate chips or any sort of chocolate, but I think the M&M’s add a nice touch.

Happy baking! IMG_6027 IMG_6014 IMG_6011
