    I just made these. Most Blondies are super sweet, but these weren't, making them perfect for the chocolate candy toppings. Two notes: Use a 9 x 13" pan and use only 1 tsp. of salt. Will definitely make again.

    I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewers. These are my favorite blondies to make and I've been making them regularly since this issue was printed. They are a nice, thick blondie - chewy and soft and so yummy! I don't always top them with M&M's though, I often use white chocolate chips, caramel chunks, nuts, or just do them plain. Give them a try!

    I've made this twice. Once using the pan size from the recipe and one using a 9 x 13. I prefer the "old" recipe using white chocolate chips and stick with the 9 x 13 pan. Sorry Martha.

    There was too much salt in the recipe. And overall pretty underwhelming. would not make again.

    WASTE OF TIME! Made these for halloween with a 9x13 pan and was still not cooked in the center after 50 min of baking but was too crispy on the outside. These did not taste like any blondie I have ever had. Tasted like a very plain cookie and the salt was way too powerful! We through the entire pan in the trash!

    Very disappointed. I believe the pan size is a type. Made in 8x8 and raw inside after 1 hour baking. Next time will use 9x13. I was sad because I was making for my daughter's Halloween party and they were a big flop.

    I have to say I was a bit disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly as well but thought the salt was overpowering. I used rock salt so perhaps that was my mistake. I would cut the salt down. Also, I baked for 40min and they came out pretty moist albeit quite a chunk of a portion so a larger pan might be better.

    Just made these today, followed the recipe exactly (didn't see the baking powder comment) using a 9x9 pan and they came out wonderfully. Used Reese's Pieces candies instead of chocolate because I had them on hand and they are just divine.

    I made these today following some mods suggested below. I used a 9 x 13 pan, 1 tsp. baking powder, and reduced the time down to about 35 minutes. With the mods, it came out beautifully. I really like how easy this recipe is from whisking the sugars and butters, then adding the flours. Super easy!! It's a great one-bowl blondie recipe.
