Ingredients
Directions
1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan with enough parchment paper to leave overhang. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
2
Melt butter in saucepan set over medium heat. Immediately stir in brown sugar; remove from heat. Transfer to bowl; let cool completely.
3
Whisk in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture just until combined.
4
Reserve 24 M&M’S®; set aside. Fold remaining M&M’S® into blondie batter; scrape into prepared baking pan, smoothing top.
5
Bake on rack set in center of oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs adhering. Transfer to rack; let cool completely. Remove from pan; remove parchment paper. Cut into 12 bars.
6
Drizzle caramel sauce over top. Garnish each bar with 2 reserved M&M’S®. Scrape melted chocolate into piping bag fitted with small round tip. Pipe dots of melted chocolate on top of each bar to form eyeballs. Tip: Substitute a tube of store-bought brown or black food coloring gel for melted dark chocolate if desired.
