Double Chocolate M&M Brownies

Double Chocolate M&M Brownies

I probably should have shared these double chocolate M&M Brownies with you last week so you could make them for your labor day festivities. Sorry about that – sometimes my lack of organizational skills gets the better of me. But… these would make fantastic after school treats for those of you with kids! Or really great anytime treats for pretty much anybody who loves chocolate. Basically what I’m saying is that you can’t go wrong with these brownies. They are incredibly soft and fudgy, and who doesn’t want a brownie filled with both chocolate chips and M&M’s?? They were a hit with everyone I shared them with, and dangerously easy to make. If you like brownies and M&M’s, you’ve got to try these.

P.S. I also made a white chocolate chip version that was pretty amazing as well!

Double Chocolate M&M Brownies


1 12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup M&M's, divided
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (dark chocolate would be good too!)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and 12 oz bag of chocolate chips in the microwave. In the same bowl, blend in the sugar and vanilla. Then add eggs, blending fully one at a time. Add flour and salt and beat until air bubbles form in the batter. Stir in 1/2 cup of M&M's and the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 9 X 13-inch pan. Sprinkle remaining M&M's on top. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn heat down to 325 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes or until brownies are done.

    These look beyond amazing! I’m drooling over the screen right now lol! Would it be possible to half the recipe? I don’t trust myself with a whole pan of brownies lying around the house! If I did half the recipe, what kind of pans could I use? Would a corning-ware pan work? Thanks so much!

    I helped a girl (she’s just learning to cook and loves it) in my building make this recipe. It was easy to make and tasted great! The only issue was that it did not cook (was still gooey in the center and throughout) in the recommended amount of time. Maybe this is because the pan size may have be slightly bigger or smaller than the one suggested.

    I had the same problem as another commenter. The middle stayed gooey even after an additional 20 minutes added onto the recommended time.

    Please say how much this recipe serves. Thanks

      It makes a 9×13 pan of brownies, so it just depends on how big or small you cut the pieces :)

    Can I check if the m&ms will crack if baked slightly too long? Also if the M&ms will stay in position as I want to place them as words.
