These Easter blondies are sure to bring 100% satisfaction to any sweet tooth!
Especially around Easter and springtime when the grass is getting greener, the sky is bluer and flowers are blooming, this recipe is the perfect way to celebrate the season’s renewal.
Easter blondies are pretty much the same exact recipe as the easy blondie recipe we all know and love.
The only difference is that you add marshmallows and Easter M&M’s to this recipe to make them extra festive!
And what better reason to make these than to be able to use up that leftover Easter candy!
Typically, I don’t make a dessert for Easter because I know there’s going to be jelly beans and a big chocolate bunny hanging around in my son’s basket.
However, this year I really wanted to make something decadent for dessert.
Obviously, this recipe did not disappoint!
How To Make Easter Blondies
Making Easter Blondies is super easy, especially if you have a stand mixer.
Needless to say, using a stand mixer (Amazon) (I have a KitchenAid and love it!) will totally save your arm muscles and will mix up the batter in no time!
Once your batter is mixed, all you have to do is add in the dry ingredients, blend well, fold in the white chocolate chips and then press it all into a 9×13 baking pan.
Then, during the last 4 minutes of baking, sprinkle the Easter M&M’s (Amazon) and mini marshmallows on top.
Oh my goodness! So good!
Here is the list of ingredients you’ll need:
- Brown Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- Corn Starch
- White Chocolate Chips
- Miniature Marshmallows
- Spring M&M’s
- Sugar Sprinkles – These are optional but will make your blondies extra festive!
How the Easter Blondies Turned Out
Clearly, based on the list of ingredients, these bars are seriously SWEET!
I wanted to make them sort of as a trial run before Easter.
So, I brought them over to my sister’s house, who had friends over for the Daytona 500 NASCAR race.
Undoubtedly, these Easter Blondies were a total hit, especially with the kids!
Not to mention, this recipe is very versatile!
Because of the pink and blue spring colors, you can also make these for a baby shower or a gender reveal party.
Without a doubt, this dessert will fit in great at any spring related event.
Tips, Tricks, & Substitutions
- These bars are SUPER sweet! If you prefer something a little less sugary, I would recommend you cut the following ingredients in half:
- White Chocolate Chips
- Spring M&M’s
- I also think using 3/4 of a stick of butter as opposed to a full stick of butter would work just fine.
- If you’re not really into marshmallows, you can omit them from the recipe.
- Substitute Easter M&M’s for any other color of M&M’s to suit your theme. For example:
- Use green M&M’s (Amazon) for St. Patrick’s Day.
- For Valentine’s Day, use their Cupids Mix (Amazon) of red, pink & white M&M’s.
- Use regular M&M’s (Amazon) for birthday blondies.
- Red, White, & Blue M&M’s (Amazon) are perfect for 4th of July and Memorial Day.
- They even have a Ghoul’s Mix (Amazon) for Halloween.
- You can also substitute Cadbury Mini Eggs (Amazon), those mini chocolate eggs, for the M&M’s.
- OR substitute all those leftover jelly beans instead of M&M’s.
