- Baking powder
- Baking soda

How do I make blonde brownies?
Blondies are an easy bar dessert that comes together with just a few minutes of effort.
I make mine in a square 8×8 baking pan to get about 12 equal bars. Start by buttering your baking dish and lightly dusting it with flour or line it with a piece of parchment paper. This makes the M&M blondies easier to remove after baking.
Next, mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl and set them aside. In a separate large bowl, combine melted butter with brown sugar. Mix in the vanilla and egg until well combined.
Now add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix to form a thick batter. Fold in the M&Ms. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure everything has been mixed.
To bake, spread the blondie batter into your prepared pan. Baking time in a preheated oven is 20 to 25 minutes. If the M&M’s have sunk as the dessert has baked, place a few remaining m&m candies on top of the blondies for more color. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
Tips for Perfect Festive Easter Blondies
The blondies will still look slightly soft when they come out of the oven. Like cookies, they’ll continue to set as they cool. Be careful not to over bake or you could end up with hard crumbly bars instead of soft and chewy ones.
To check the blondie bars for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the pan. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go.
Blondies are a little easier to slice than brownies, but for perfect edges I recommend using a clean sharp knife, wiping off excess crumbs before making each cut. You can serve your Easter Blondies right away or store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Can I freeze blondies with M&Ms?
Yes, blondies with M&Ms can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Like other blondies made with colorful candies or sprinkles, the color may “bleed” as they thaw, but I actually think this makes the Easter bars look even more colorful and fun.
