These Red, White and Blue Blondies are the perfect treat to take to a potluck or enjoy at home with a tall glass of milk. 


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 cups of packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup of butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1 bag of Red, White and Blue M&Ms
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a 9-inch square or 10-inch square
  • In a large bowl, mix all of the dry stuff – flour, sugar, and baking powder
  • In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients – melted butter, eggs, vanilla
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry
  • Mix well
  • Fold in the M&Ms and chocolate chips
  • The dough will be thick, kind of like play dough, so it really won’t pour out into your pan. It will do more of a plop into your pan. Push the dough out to the edges making sure the depth looks pretty even.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top starts turning a little crusty and golden, and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean
  • Enjoy with a tall glass of milk


  • This blonde brownie makes a thick brownie. The center might not seem like it will ever set. It’s meant to be moist. Make sure that you let the brownie set and cool completely – like an hour. This will allow any moisture to air out and the brownie will set up even more for you
  • *It’s perfectly fine to eat the brownies before they cool completely, just know that they will be really moist
  • You can make this recipe in a larger pan to ensure more even doneness. Check on it to be sure that it is not overcooking, as the more spread out the batter is, the quicker it should bake


  • Store in an airtight container or covered with a wrap to keep moist up to 4 days
