Frosted M&M Blondies is my recipe of the day to add some fun to another blah  Tuesday at home while  we shelter in  place.

This one has been in my files since last year, as I made it for Easter but didn’t have enough time  to get it posted before the holiday.

 

Frosted M&M Blondies

It’s  a simple enough bar cookie using the M&Ms bagged candies, and I also used a canned frosting. If you can’t find pink,  you can always stir a few drops of food color into a vanilla type.

As well, if you can’t find M&Ms (no one  normally has this issue, but these are extraordinary times) you can sub with something like chocolate chips.

The bars are also fabulous  plain without frosting.
