I have some good stuff for you guys today – a recipe that involves lots of chocolate (including M&M’s!) and a contest. We’ve been doing a lot of baking  at our house lately. That’s probably my favorite thing about winter. I love being able to turn the oven on, bake something delicious, and have the house smell awesome. And there aren’t too many things that make the house smell better than brownies – or in this case brownie brittle.

This M&M Brownie Brittle recipe makes crispy, chocolaty brittle that’s full of M&Ms and mini chocolate chips. It’s totally delicious, and it’s perfect for snacking or gifting.

Now, if you like things a little more on the chewy/crisp side, you can use a smaller baking sheet. You’ll end up with a brittle that is similar to the edge of a brownie. Whether you go crispy or chewy/crisp, you’ll end up with a yummy, chocolate treat!

And now, on to the contest…

    Everyone enjoyed this recipe. I liked it a lot. It came out crunchy just like the recipe said. I liked the amount of chocolate taste it had. Did not have any issues with burning. Took longer than recipe said to cook. I cooked an extra 15-20 minutes. Quick & easy. Would recommend this recipe to others.

      I’m glad you liked it! =)

      I think my oven bakes on the faster side, but I’m hesitant to up baking times because it’s always easier to add extra time than try to fix overcooked food. I’m glad you were able to make it work!

      That was what inspired me to make this, too! I kept seeing bags of brownie brittle at the store, so I thought we’d make some. Absolutely! I think the candy cane M&M’s would be great in this, too. =)
