I’m always in the mood to bake. Especially when I don’t have to dirty up my stand mixer. Especially when it’s cloudy and rainy outside. Especially when I have no plans for the day. Especially when I already have pie and cupcakes in my kitchen. Especially when I am craving chocolate. Especially when… oh, uhm… well… I guess whenever really!
Remember those peanut M&M in German colors I found a few weeks ago at the Edeka here in Germany? Well, I haven’t gotten around to using them yet… until today. But hmm… what should I put them in? While browsing Pinterest, I came across a pretty simple recipe for brownies from Buns in My Oven which I used as my inspiration for these brownies. Fudgey brownies are my weakness, so I was sure I’d love this recipe!
Just a little note on these brownies, they are super sweet and call for a lot of sugar. If you want them less sweet, I’d cut the sugar by at least 1/2 a cup… maybe more. Also, they are really super fudgey, so if you want more cake like brownies, use only 2 eggs.
PS… These would be really good minus the M&Ms and add a cup of peanuts. The crunch and saltyness of the peanuts go really well in these brownies… I found myself wanting more peanut in each bite!
