Double-Decker Confetti Brownies

Tomorrow is National Blonde Brownie Day. Brownies and blondies just happen to be two of our favorite desserts so in celebration we whipped together these extremely easy Double-Decker Confetti Brownies. We love how the tiny M&M's add a lot of pretty color.

Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 cup mini M&M's

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan; set aside.
3. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy; beat in eggs and vanilla. 4. In a medium bowl combine 2 1/4 cups flour, baking powder and salt; blend into creamed mixture. 5. Divide batter in half. Blend together cocoa powder and melted butter; stir into one half of the dough.
6. Spread cocoa dough evenly into prepared baking pan.
7. Stir remaining 1/4 cup flour and 1/2 cup mini M&M's into remaining dough; spread evenly over cocoa dough in pan. 8. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mini M&M's.
9. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until edges start to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely. 10. Cut into squares and store in a tightly covered container.
