Valentine Almond Blondies

Happy Valentine's Day!
It has finally stopped snowing here.  I think we have over 17" of snow with more snow on the horizon for tomorrow.  I plan on spending some of my day seeing my two grandchildren and giving them big hugs and kisses. What a lucky Grandma I am!  I have never made blondies before because I love chocolate so brownies are always my first choice but these have a good flavor too.  The recipe is adapted from  These are quick enough to make a batch today.  Enjoy your weekend!  

2/3 cup butter, melted
1-3/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup valentine M & M's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 13" x 9" pan with PAM.  Melt butter and brown sugar in saucepan over medium heat stirring until smooth.

Set aside for 5 minutes so it will cool.  Add eggs one at a time stirring after each addition.  Add almond and vanilla extracts.  Stir in flour, baking powder and baking soda.  Add 1/2 of the chocolate chips and M & M's. Stir until blended.

 Pour into prepared pan.  Sprinkle rest of chocolate chips and M & M's over top.  Bake for 25 minutes.

Cool before cutting into squares.
