2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature (2 sticks)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups M&M's"® Semi-Sweet or Milk Chocolate Mini Baking Bits

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13-by-9-inch pan with aluminum foil so that the foil extends about 2 inches beyond the long sides of the pan. Lightly grease the foil.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In the bowl of an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat the butter and both sugars for 2 to 3 minutes until well mixed, light, and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.

Reduce the speed to low and slowly add the flour. Beat just until the flour is combined.

Remove the bowl from the mixer and use a wooden spoon to stir in 1 3/4 cups of the M&M's.

Scrape the batter into the pan and spread evenly with the back of the wooden spoon or a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of M&M's over the top of the blondies.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the blondies look set, are just barely beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the pan comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.

Set the pan on a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes. Using the foil sides as handles, lift the blondies from the pan and set the foil directly on the wire rack to complete cooling for at least 2 hours.

Cut the cooled blondies into squares and serve immediately or store.

To store, put the blondies in an airtight container, such as a tin or rigid plastic storage container.

For longer storage, wrap the blondies in wax paper or plastic and then in a double layer of aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature.
