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 bark.
This M&M Brownie Bark 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…
