M&Ms Valentine Blondies are blondies with a colorful twist! You’ll love this classic blondies recipe dotted with red, pink and white M&Ms candies. Sweet, chewy and fun to eat, these M&M Blondies are the perfect treat to bake for that someone special.
You can even be your own “someone special” if it gives you an excuse to make (and eat) M&M blondies!
All I want for Valentine’s Day is for someone to surprise me with a breakfast in bed of Chocolate Cherry Pancakes for breakfast. Since I’m the pancake maker in the house, that doesn’t sound likely (but a girl can dream, right?).
What I DO know for sure is that I’ll be baking a batch of these Valentine’s Day Blondies again on February 14th! Yes, I’ll share them with the other members of my household, but you can bet your last M&M I’m gonna stash a couple away just for me.
Blondies are similar in consistency to a chewy, fudgy brownie, but without the chocolate. They have a sweet vanilla flavor that reminds me of chocolate chip cookie dough. Baked in one pan, then sliced into bars, blondies are the perfect handheld dessert for any occasion!
As much as I love a straightforward classic blondie, I think they’re even better when you add mix-ins.
Besides, everything is better with chocolate, right?
For this Valentine’s Day dessert, I kept it simple. A handful of Valentines M&Ms transformed the basic blondie bars into an adorable and festive treat that’ll get even the biggest cynic ready to celebrate love.
To make these Valentine’s M&Ms Blondies, you will need:
Desserts with M&Ms are some of my favorites for holiday baking. It’s so easy to switch up favorite recipes just by using different colors of M&Ms. If you want to make these blondies for other holidays, just swap out the M&Ms for another combination of colors. Or use a regular multi colored mix to enjoy these blondies all year long!
Yes, blondies will hold up well to freezing. To freeze blondies, let them cool, then slice them into bars. Store the bars in a freezer safe sealed bag with parchment paper between layers. They stay good in the freezer for up to 3 months.
As a rule of thumb, I like to make a couple of different desserts on special holidays. First, because my family is known to eat up all of my baked goods before I even get a chance to enjoy them. Second, because no one is ever disappointed to have EXTRA desserts!
These JELL-O Valentine Hearts are super easy and a hit with the kids. For the grown ups, Wasabi Chocolate Crinkle Cookies deliver rich cocoa flavor with a surprising kick. And you can never go wrong with frosted cookies, especially these Strawberry Buttercream Sugar Cookies that are pretty in pink!
Speaking of all things strawberry, these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Dream Bars are like chocolate-dipped strawberries and whipped cream all in one. They’d be an amazing addition to your Valentine’s Day celebrations, along with this Strawberry Poke Cake.
