Ingredients

  • BLOND LAYER:
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • CHOCOLATE LAYER:
  • 10 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1-1/3 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tubes white decorating gel
  • 1 cup M&M's miniature baking bits

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture just until moistened.
  2. Press into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat; stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Spread over warm blond layer.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Cut into 36 rectangles (3-1/4x1 in.). With decorating gel, draw a line dividing each rectangle in half widthwise; attach baking bits with dabs of decorating gel to resemble dominoes.
