M & M Blondies – Red, White & Blondie

M & M Blondies

Can someone tell me how next week could possibly be July!!  June flew by and I really don’t even feel like summer has started yet.  Maybe it is our lack of warm sunshine??  Sixty degrees just doesn’t feel too summery but I can’t complain because the rain has been good for our garden and all the new plants we put in the ground in preparation for the Wedding Carnival.   I really must share a few of the many projects I have been working for the Wedding Carnival soon!

We are planning a 4th of July get together with our neighbors out in the cul de sac.  We pretty much do it every year except for the years we are at our beach house for the 4th and then we invite them down there.  There will be lots of food, kids, fireworks and the ever popular potato gun!

Today’s recipe for M & M Blondies – Red, White and Blondie style may make an appearance at our 4th of July party.

M & M BLondies
I used the same blondie recipe I used for those yummy white chocolate and toffee blondies a few weeks ago.  I just used M & M’s and white chocolate chips instead.
If you don’t care what your M & M color scheme is just replace the white chocolate chips with more M & M’s

Since you can find white M & M’s, the white chocolate chips filled in for the white part.  I bought a regular bag of M & M’s and pulled out all the red and blue.  There are a lot more blue M & M’s in a bag than there are red.  I think we all need to let Mr. M & M know that next year he needs to come out with red, white and blue M & M’s for the 4th of July!  Will someone please let him know.
M & M BlondiesJust mix up the dough and add in the M & M’s and chips.

I like to line my 9 x 13 with foil and then spray with some cooking spray to make removal from the pan a cinch.
M & M BlondiesAfter they are baked and cooled I drizzled some white chocolate over the top.

I had some fun 4th of July sprinkles so I added those on top for good measure too.

They are then ready to be cut and enjoyed! In all their patriotic goodness.

    Quick question – Does the recipe call for 1 and 1/4 cup of sugar or 1/4 Cup of sugar. Looks different in the email and on this blog. I want to do them right!!

    I love blondies! Sometimes party stores have M&M bulk bins…that’s always a good place to find specific colors when doing something like this. But I like the idea of using white chocolate chips instead of white M&Ms.
