Best Ever M&M Brownies

Best Ever M&M Brownies
I found this recipe for the Best Ever M&M brownies about 4 years ago when I was getting really frustrated with boxed brownie mix. I would get a hankering for a really amazing brownie, whip up a box mix like my mom used, and then be disappointed with the results. They never seemed to be “just right”

So, enter this little gem of a recipe. I cannot remember what magazine I found this in. But I do know it was from a magazine. I don’t even remember what the recipe was called. I just call them the Best Ever M&M Brownies.
This is a nice thick batter. You can see what I mean when I say “spread it in to the pan”. The thick consistency is what keeps is so yummy and rich in the middle, yet creating a nice cracked top.

Trust me, you will want to eat these for breakfast with your coffee.  I know, I’ve been there.


Best Ever M&M Brownies



  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • cup M&Ms


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Line 9X13 baking pan with foil and spray foil with cooking spray
  3. In a large bowl, combine butter and cocoa. Mix well
  4. Add sugars and salt. Mix well
  5. Add eggs. One at a time and mix well each time in between eggs. Do not add all at once, and really mix well. You don’t want a bite of chocolate cooked egg bit. Gross!
  6. Add flour. Mix well
  7. Gently stir in M&Ms
  8. Bake 30-35 min until the edges pull away slightly from the pan and center is done.
  9. *If you are needing to make a goodie for a Christmas party or guest, drizzle some melted white chocolate over these delicious babies and serve them with a very proud smile. I have even drizzled melted Andies mint candies over them. OH.MY.Heavens!!

  1. My mms ended up melting into the brownie even at 350 and for less than 20 min of baking. your brownie looked as if the mm were added on before it was fully cooked. If this is the route I take next time, what is your suggested baking time before adding on the mms?

  2. This recipe is now my go-to brownie recipe after making it 3 times. 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Don't know what happened to my other comment, but these brownies are AMAZING!! Loved them and will definitely be making them again. Thanks for sharing =)
