I just love blondies and have a wonderful collection of them. These blondies were made with M&M Candies, hence the name, "Rainbow Blondies".
I made this for the kids for Halloween. We don't really let them go trick or treating anymore. So we take them to the Mall - and it was rockin'!!! Then we bring them home and have a little party for them.
The flour can be swapped out for mochiko flour.
