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!
