Yummy & Pretty Rainbow M&M Peanut Butter Blondies


Two weeks ago I took my daughter for a trip to Dylan’s Candy Bar. I am lucky that we can get there so easily, it is just a short drive for us. While we were there my daughter had a blast picking out a rainbow of M&M colors. They have a wall of M&M dispensers and we took a little bit of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple and tied them up in a bag to take home. Once we got home my daughter wanted to bake something with them so I popped onto the M&M website and found this great recipe for peanut butter M&M blondies. I made a few changes to the recipe and then my daughter put her rainbow M&M’s on top in a (somewhat) perfect rainbow. They baked up beautifully and we enjoyed eating our rainbow for the rest of the week. They even transport so well I took a whole bunch to the beach with us to share with friends, they were a hit all around!

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 13×9 baking dish, set aside.

2. In an electric mixer beat the sugars, butter, peanut butter, and eggs until smooth. Stir in the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Stir in ½ of the M&Ms. Press the dough into the bottom of the baking sheet. Decorate the top of the bars with the M&M’s with an arching rainbow, or as desired. Bake the bars until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool and serve.
