Brown Butter Pretzel M&M Blondies

by zesty on December 7, 2012 · 7 comments

Hi Zesty readers!  Sally here again, we’re in week number five of Cookie Craziness 2012.

Today, I’m shaing my favorite blondie recipe ever. Ok, so a blondie isn’t technically a cookie but can you really pass these up?

When I first spotted pretzel M&Ms on the shelves a couple years ago, I immediately threw them into blondies, sat on my tush, and happily gobbled up one sweet & salty bite after bite.  I shared these blondies on my blog earlier this year and my readers adored them.

I know you’ll love them as well. :)

 The blondie recipe begins by browning some butter.  I swear by browning butter – it adds so much depth and flavor to your baked good – so many caramel and butterscotch undertones.  Brown butter is my kitchen’s secret little ingredient. And it’s so easy!  It makes the house smell incredible as it’s browning.

The rest of the recipe is pretty straightfoward – flour, brown sugar, egg, baking powder, & vanilla.  And you can mix it all up by hand. No mixer required!

The finished blondies are so soft and chewy – they completely melt in your mouth!  The crunchy m&ms, the salty pretzels, buttery dough – my new favorite blondie.  And they are SO easy to make.

YAY! Thanks Zesty! I adore this blondie recipe so much. Cookie Craziness 2012 has been a BLAST!

Thanks for this great recipe! Just a quick question, do you think these can be baked in the mini muffin tins for the kids, rather then a baking pan? Thanks:)

Hey Kaley! They sure can – reduce the time to about 15 minutes. Check them at the 12 minute mark. I’ve never make these in mini muffin tins so I can’t be 100% accurate how long they would take. Also, the huge pretzel M&Ms might be too big for mini muffin tins, so try regular M&Ms instead. Thanks Kaley!
