Butterscotch M&M Bars


Last night we went to my son’s first grade musical, Dinostars.  He played a Pterodactyl, and had a speaking part.  He did a great job!  All the kids did a great job, they were all so cute dressed up like dinosaurs, singing their songs. Amazing how grown up he is getting.  He turns 7 next month.  While he was at school yesterday, I went out and bought him a new pair of shoes.  They were the same size as mine!  Seriously?!  My 6 year old has the same size feet as me?  I am really not sure how I feel about this.

Despite how big he is getting, I can still win him over with treats .  Hopefully that will never change.  He was a big fan of these bars.  He doesn’t always like white chocolate, but he did in here!  I had seen these White Chocolate M&M’s all over the place, I just had pick up a bag, and try them myself.  My husband loves butterscotch, so I thought I would mix the two together.  He loved these Blondies I made, but I wanted the butterscotch flavor to go all throughout, instead of just chips.  So I melted the chips down, and stirred it into the batter.  Brilliant!  I am seeing this technique working out well with other recipes too.

  1. I am sure my son who is 9 wouldn’t resist to these beauties! He would eat them all without any excuses! They look delicious!

  2. You know I’m a fan of these already – I made some blondies a couple weeks ago with white chocolate M&M’s and they were a perfect combo with the brown sugar goodness. I adore that you added butterscotch to these…definitely another favorite of mine!

  3. Desserts are a great way to anyone’s heart :) These are perfect for spring, love them!

  4. Oh yum! This solves my issue of not really being a brownie/chocolate fan! Yes, it’s true. I’m not really a chocolate fan. Don’t throw me out of the foodie lovers club!

    Great recipe! These look amazing, Erin!

  5. I would love these bars since I love butterscotch! I always buy the holiday m&m’s but have tried not to lately since I need to cut back. If I do get some I’m trying this out :).

  6. These look wonderful and I’m definitely going to have to get some of those white chocolate M&M’s!

  7. HOW CUTE! I love musicals. Especially when there are kids in them. Too cute.

    These M&M bars look super delicious too and completely addicting.

  8. My grandson is almost 7 and it is such a sweet age! I know he would love these bars, thanks for sharing;-)

  9. A pterodactyl?? I wish my musicals had been that cool! Congrats on him doing well :)
    Ooh, these blondies sound fantastic!

  10. i have all of these ingredients. i think you read my mind! PS: LOVE how easy these are to make too Erin!

  11. Mmm, these look yummy, especially withe butterscotch melted into it! Glad you and your son both liked the play, dinosaurs are always adorable!

  12. So glad your son’s play went well–this little butterscotch morsels look absolutely delicious.

  13. I hope to make these for Easter! They look so fun

  14. You are being so unfair, showing me this in the morning 😉
    These bars look stunning and with such exquisite flavours, how could they not be brilliant!

  15. There are so cute and look delish!!!!

  16. I’ve seen those white chocolate M&M’s in a few recipes lately. I really love what you did with them! I bet your son will always remember fondly coming home from school or a play to have wonderful treats waiting for him. I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  17. Loving these butterscotch blondies, Erin! And too funny about the shoe thing. I don’t have kids yet, but I have two younger siblings that are 15 years younger than me and they are getting so much and I actually wore my 12 year old sister’s boots last winter. Crazy how fast they grow!

  18. Great combination of flavors! I can’t believe your 6 year old has feet as big as yours. You must be really tiny or your son is going to be super tall! I can’t wait until my daughter is my shoe size so we can share shoes. Although, I’m a size 10 so not sure she will have my big feet or not!

  19. Holy cow you must have small feet… at least I hope that’s the case. How cute, Dinostars! My son would have loved to take part of that… he adores dinosaurs. :) Okay… these bars look beyond yummy.. butterscotch and M&M! Wow..way to go! :)

  20. You had me at butterscotch! And I love that you used pastel M & Ms!

  21. My son had his first stage performance recently too (dance and singing). We did a lot of practice together so I was really happy he enjoyed the performance. I know how you feel. :-) Wow your son’s shoe size is same as yours? I’m 5 feet, so I know eventually my kids will be taller than me very soon… a little bit scary, but it’s better that way. Haha. These bars look delicious!

  22. I loved butterscotch candy as a kid and who doesn’t like M&Ms? In bar form, together, I bet they were a hit with everyone. They would be with me! :)

  23. I don’t even know what a Pterodactyl is? Maybe I need to go back to school. I don’t know when my shoe size was the same as my mom’s but it lasted only about 6 months. I was always jealous of friends who could share shoes with their moms. I suppose your son has now yearnings to share your shoes.

  24. Awesome idea, and very creative recipe!!! Great for any kid!!!!

  25. oooh..these sound yummy! Love the idea and I think I would LOVE this! My little girl can have a piece or two, but I think I’ll save most of it for myself… Thanks! 😀

  26. It is amazing how big they get and so fast! These delightful treats would win me over as well :)

  27. If he is anything like my BF as he grows, treats from his mom will always win! These bars look sooo yummy – they would win anyone – any size shoe over 😀
