Caramel Swirled Pretzel M&M Blondies

Caramel Swirled Pretzel M&M Blondies Stacked
While I was on vacation I had some time to think.
Like about life and all that.
Some questions went unanswered.
For example…
Why do we always eat beef jerky on road trips but never any other time?
Why is it always super important for the hotel where I stay to have a gym, but I never use them.
Why did Meg Ryan do all that weird stuff to her face?
how about…
Am I the only person in the history of the world that thinks fireworks are overrated?
and of course…
Could there be anything better than Cracker Barrel Hash Brown casserole?
I am pretty sure that Confucius and I would be homies.  You know, pondering all life’s enigmas.
Anyway…another of my big concerns in life is why haven’t I baked with Pretzel M&Ms yet?
That’s completely nonsensical.
So…situation resolved.  I can check that one off my list.

Here’s what you’ll need…

  1. I was worried about how these would turn out because it seemed like there wasn’t enough dough but it worked out in the end. They are literally one of the best things I have made! So good!!

  2. Holy cow! These are amazing! I’ve made them at least once a week since I discovered them on Pinterest. (Some batches have been for others – I haven’t taken them all down myself – though I could.) Just had to say thank you for sharing the deliciousness!
