The M&M’s sank below, giving the brownies a sweet bottom layer of crunchiness and flavor.

If you have yet to try them, do yourself a favor and pick up a bag of White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s. They are SO good, I even stocked up and have several extra bags in my pantry at the moment. Last night, my two year old daughter asked to bake brownies. Since it was the night before Halloween, I decided to sprinkle a bag of the M&M’s on top of the batter. (The whole bag did not get on the brownies because we munched on them while we mixed up the batter).
The M&M’s sank toward the bottom, even though I sprinkled them on top of the batter.  (Perhaps they would have stayed on top had I used a thicker brownie batter). This did not harm the quality of the brownies, as they were just as delicious as I imagined they would be. The white chocolate candy corn crunch of the M&M’s gave a tasty contrast to the milk chocolate flavor of the fudgy brownies.

  1. There’s a baker’s trick for keeping nuts from sinking to the bottom of the baking pan.  You toss them with a little flour before stirring them into the batter.  The flour acts like a glue and keeps them suspended in the batter during the baking process.  I don’t know if it would work with M&Ms or not, but it might be worth a try.

  2. I never did find those m&ms even at my Wal-mart.  Those brownies look totally good though.
