M&M Crunch Brownies

M&M Crunch Brownies

Here's a unique recipe for brownies that's a fun departure from your normal, everyday brownie recipe.

What makes this so special is the crunch on top. Before putting your pan into the oven, the brownie batter is topped with a mixture of brown sugar, oats, nuts, cinnamon and M&M's which forms a nice crunchy texture on top of the moist and chewy brownies. It's a rather pleasant complement if I do say so myself!

M&M Crunch Brownies

  • 1 package (21 to 23 ounces) fudge brownie mix
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 2/3 cup quick oats, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups plain M&M's

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking pan and set aside.

Prepare brownie mix as directed on package for cake-like brownies. Spread batter into prepared pan.

In a medium mixing bowl, mix together nuts, oats, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Stir in M&Ms until distributed. Sprinkle mixture evenly over brownies.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out almost clean.

Remove pan and allow to cool completely on wire rack.

Cut brownies into desired size and shape.

This recipe makes about 30 M&M Crunch Brownies.
