Chewy, buttery, and packed with chocolate coated candies make these Brown Sugar Blondies for Valentine’s Day perfect!
I have pulled out my Valentine’s Day decorations, and we are gearing up for the month of “love”. I like to make several yummy treats during the month of February, and these Brown Sugar Blondies are on the top of that list. The only thing that really makes them festive for Valentine’s Day are the M&M’s. So in all reality, you can totally change out the color of the candy to represent any holiday (or sports team) you want. I’ve made these around Christmas several times.
Of course if you have a hankering for these right now, and your fresh out of those candy coated candies, you can use chocolate chips, or butterscotch chips. The butterscotch chips really lend a scrumptious flavor! You could get all creative and use heart shaped cookie cutters to cut these out, but I’m too lazy for all that, and pull these out with the parchment lined baking dish, drop them on the counter, and slice using my huge pizza cutter. It’s not the typical roll type, but sort of a large blade sort of thing. Very awesome for cutting pizza and these blondies! That would be a great pairing for Valentine’s Day. Last year I shared my Pepperoni Pizza for your Loves because it’s so cute with it’s little heart shaped pepperoni’s!
So on to this delicious Brown Sugar Blondies for Valentine’s Day! Your gonna love these, I promise.
