M&M’S® Easter Brownies Recipe

Happy Easter!

Well, I know Easter isn’t until tomorrow, but I couldn’t help my sweet tooth nor resist my urge to bake. I came across this delicious idea for Easter brownies and thought it would be fun to create. So, it’s no surprise that the inspiration I retrieved came from the hills and valleys of Pinterest, but with my own little spin.

Because the Easter Bunny is on his way, a lot of our favorite Easter candy has resurfaced or has been redesigned to coincide with pretty pastel colors and Easter themes, which made it very fun and easy to decorate my M&M’S® Easter Brownies. Now, my candy of choice was obviously Peanut M&M’S®, however you are free to use any candy of your choice!

See the Easter sweet treat recipe below!
