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!

3. In a large mixing bowl combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Mix well. Add in both eggs and vanilla and blend together.
