Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (115 grams) unsalted butter , melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs , at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (65 grams) all purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
  • 1/2 cup (45 grams) cocoa powder , sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (95 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup M&M's

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving some overhang. If using foil, spray well with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs, making sure to mix well after each one. Mix in the vanilla until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the brownie mixture into the prepared baking pan (the batter will be very thick). Evenly sprinkle the M&M's over the top.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. You will know the brownies are finished when the edges start to slightly pull away and the top looks done.
  • Allow to cool completely and cut into squares.

Notes

Storage instructions: Store cooled brownies in an airtight container on the counter for up to five days.
Freezing Instructions: Brownies will freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw to room temperature before serving.
