Recipe for Spring Blondies

This Easter is just going to be so strange, isn’t it? I’m planning our menu and trying to make it as special as I can without the rest of our family. We’re planning on steaks and smashed potatoes with some veg on the side and a fresh batch of these blondies!

(PS you can grab last year’s Easter menu here!)

These are so easy to whip up, just 7 ingredients and a few minutes and bam, you’ve got blondies ready to bake. Aren’t these so cute, with the spring colored M&Ms?!

I’ve made these blondies a bunch of times already during this quarantine and they go fast. So you know my diet is going really well, huh? Ha! They’re really great with coffee. Just sayin’.

You don’t need anything fancy for this recipe – I use my stand mixer (I have this one, but love this as an affordable alternative, seen here), but you could also use a hand mixer. You’ll also need a 9×13 pan. Mine broke last week, so I’ve been using an 8×8 and breaking the batter into two batches.

Let me know if you make these!
