Brown Sugar Blondies

Brown Butter Brown Sugar Blondies 1_small

Yesterday I needed a superfast treat for some of Kate’s friends who were coming over after school. I had some Valentine’s M&Ms and thought they’d go perfectly in a bar cookie. (I love a good bar cookie — no scooping and rolling — done in a flash!)

The brown sugar and brown butter in these blondies pack a wallop of extra flavor. They are nice and crunchy on the outside and tender and chocolate-y on the inside.

I had to steal these three bars off someone’s plate to snap a pic — they were gone that fast!
