Brown Sugar Blondies for Valentine’s Day

     This month the What’s Baking? Challenge was hosted by Sandra of She Cooks and Bakes!  She challenged us to bake with Valentine’s Day colors which was perfect because I was planning on doing that anyhow!

    When I think of Valentine’s Day desserts I think of sweet, pretty, and pink.  These brown sugar blondies are all of those things.  The blondies are full of sweet brown sugar, are mixed with chocolate chunks and Valentine’s M&M’s, then sprinkled on top with the M&M’s.  I served these treats to my students at school and they were begging for more!
