Holiday Blondies

  • 8 oz. Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 large Eggs plus one Egg Yolk
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Red and Green M&Ms
  • 12 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Sea Salt (optional), for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350F or 176C. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper or spray the pan with nonstick baking spray, set aside.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter until browned, then place in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the brown sugar and whisk until well combined. Add the vanilla and stir. Then, add in the eggs and egg yolk, beat until combined.
  • Fold in the flour and salt, until just combined. Then, fold in the M&Ms and chocolate chips. Tip: Do not over mix the batter, this will make the blondies more dense.
  • Scrape the batter into the pan.
  • Bake for 25 to 30  minutes, or until the edges are firm and golden. You can also insert a toothpick to check doneness; the toothpick should come out clean.
  • Let cool before cutting. Sprinkle with sea salt before serving, optional.
  • Store in airtight containers.
