I wanted to bake and had a bag of m&m's staring at me.....

The title pretty much says it all. I bought a couple bags of dark chocolate peanut M&M's at Target last weekend and I had one bag left staring at me. I wanted to bake but couldn't decide what so I made these babies. Enjoy!

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 hearty pour of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1pinch of sea salt
  • 1 large bag of dark chocolate peanut M&M's(or flavor of choice)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
  2. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with oil or line with melted butter (not the one listed in the recipe!)
  3. In your mixer bowl add the  sugar and butter and mix until combined. 
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  5. Add in the flour and salt and mix until JUST COMBINED!
  6. Fold in the 3/4 the bag of  M&M'Ss.
  7. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and smooth out the top. 
  8. Top the smoothed out batter with the remaining M&M's.
  9. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes ( when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean without batter...will have melted chocolate).
  10. Let bars and pan cool and the cut and serve!
