Love is in the air❣ We’ve been baking up all kinds of treats this week and these Peanut Butter Blondies with M&M’s might be our favorite so far. Not too sweet and just the right amount of peanut butter for richness; and candy M&M’s are a special addition for valentines week. Basically, I think they are perfect. 🥰

This recipe is also easy enough to do with your kids. Everything gets mixed in one bowl and the ingredients list is short making this manageable with littles. Plus your kiddos will love adding the fun colorful candy and probably eating them too!



Swap out the candy M&M’s for chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or even peanut butter chips for the ultimate peanut butter blondie.
