Peanut butter and chocolate, such a great combination. I made these brownies with M&M’s Peanut Butter Eggs. Yum! I just love peanut butter M&M’s. They remind me of the peanut butter Oompas that we used to buy at the corner store as kids.
Anyone else out there remember these yummy candies? We used to ride our bikes down to the little convenience store and spend our allowance on candy. I can’t remember the name of the store but I do remember it had the best candy selection in town! I would always buy Peanut Butter Oompas and some wonderful new flavor of Bubble Yum.
Nothing will ever compare to the Oompas but Peanut Butter M&M’s are pretty close. And they are a delicious addition to these brownies.
You think there will be any left for Easter?
The brownie recipe is adapted from Sunset’s Cookies cookbook, it is one of my favorite cookie cookbooks. Every recipe I have made from it turns out great.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 12 ounce bag peanut butter m&m's eggs
I a 2-3 quart pan, melt butter and chocolate over medium low heat, stirring well until blended. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. stir in flour.
Spread batter evenly in a greased 9 inch square baking pan, Top with the m&ms and push then into the batter a little. Not too much though, you want the pretty colors peeking through and the brownies will bake up around them.
Bake in a 325 degree F oven for about 35 minutes. Let cool in pan on a rack. Cut into 2 1/4 inch squares. Store in airtight container.
