Coconut Dark M&M Blondies

Looking for a recipe to make on a cold and rainy day?

I’ve got just the thing!

This recipe is sure to bring a little sunshine into your home especially on days like this.

Be sure to have your sunglasses on hand, because once you make a batch of these babies you’ll be needing them.

Not sure if it’s the name “Blondie” that just screams “sunshine”, or the fact that I added coconut flakes. For all I know, the sunshine could have very well been attributed to the cup full of Easter M&Ms that I threw in the mix, regardless… I’m telling you it worked!

These look awesome. I love coconut, but I’m allergic to chocolate. Could you recommend something I could use in place of the M&Ms to make these blondies allergy friendly? Thanks!

Ahhh…where did you find your dark chocolate Easter m&m’s?!?!?!? I’ve been searching high and low to find them this year without success. Anyway, these look great! :D
