I am such a sucker for pumpkin flavored stuff. I was in the grocery store the other day, shopping for groceries we needed for the week, and I walked by an end cap that had pumpkin stuff all over it. That was all it took. They really know how to get you, don’t they? I mean, who can resist a display full of pumpkin stuff? Not me! So, obviously, I had to pick up a couple bags of goodies and bring them home with me, right? I snagged a bag of pumpkin spice chips and a bag of pumpkin spice marshmallows. I really had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I just had to have them!
When I got home, I put the pumpkin goodies away in the cabinet, and waited for some inspiration to strike. A couple of days later, John came home from work and handed me a bag of fall colored m&m’s – red, orange, yellow and brown – that he had picked up from the grocery store. Apparently, he can’t resist the end caps full of holiday candy either!
I just knew these colorful candies belonged with my pumpkin spice chips and pumpkin spice marshmallows, and I set out to Pinterest to figure out what to do with all of these delicious goodies.
I wanted to make some kind of a cookie or blondie, and when I stumbled upon these Marshmallow Blondies from Cookies and Cups, I just knew that was the recipe I was going to tweak with my pumpkin goodies.
While her blondies are made with butterscotch chips, mini marshmallows and white chocolate chips, these are made with pumpkin spice chips, pumpkin spice marshmallows, and also include those pretty fall colored m&m’s I love so much. The end result is a delicious, chewy blondie with a very subtle pumpkin spice flavor. These are the perfect treat to serve at your fall gatherings, or to even just whip up for yourself or your family.
I hope you enjoy these Pumpkin Marshmallow M&M Blondies as much as I do!

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a 9×9 baking dish with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a small saucepan, melt the pumpkin chips and butter together over low heat and set aside to cool slightly. The mixture may appear to be slightly separated.
