We’re all so busy and pressed for time that I find myself creating recipes that are generally fast to prepare, proving that you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen to obtain fabulous results. Here’s a favorite of mine that combines crunchy M&M's and gooey chocolate all nestled into a flavorful blondie.—Averie Sunshine, San Diego, California www.averiecooks.com

"How am I the first to be reviewing this recipe?! They are so simple to make, and EVERYONE loved them. The batter may seem like it is slightly overloaded with the oreo cookies when you are adding them, but trust me, it is just right. I will definitely make these again. My only criticism is that 1 tbsp of vanilla is not necessary. 1 tsp is plenty. Don't go wasting good extract here. The oreos are enough flavor here!"
