M&M Brownie Recipe

I’m a huge brownie and cookie fan! I’ll pass up a slice of cake any day for a fudge brownie!! Now these brownies are amazing with M&Ms but will work just fine without them too. Adding a touch of holiday colors with M&M’s limited edition are perfect for a potluck dessert! I cut my batch into stars and Mickey’s using my cookie cutters. A tip for cutting out brownies is to wrap in foil and put it in the freezer for about 30 mins. This makes an easy clean cut without breaking when using cookie cutters or even a knife.


  • 1 1/2  unsalted butter cut into Tbsp-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup natural cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee ground (optional)
  • 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup M&M’s


  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a 9×9 (for fudgier brownies) or 13×9 baking pan with parchment paper
  • Combine butter and 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips in a large, microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir well, microwave for another 15 seconds and then stir well again.  Repeat for 15 seconds until chocolate and butter are completely melted and well-combined.
  • Add cocoa powder and instant coffee (if using), stir well.
  • Add sugars, stir until completely combined.
  • Add eggs, one at a time.  After each addition, stir well, and then stir another 30 seconds
  • Stir in vanilla extract
  • Add flour, stir until completely combined.  You cannot overmix this batter, make sure it is mixed very well.
  • Spread into prepared 9×9 or 13×9 pan.
  • Sprinkle M&M’s over pan
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 mins use toothpick in the center to check if it’s cooked through.
  • Allow to cool before cutting and serving.
