Pinned Image
Of course anything made with M&Ms has to be a delightful and tasty treat, but these are also a wonderful surprise for Valentine's Day! I found this recipe on Pinterest . . . I'm sure it will be enjoyed at my house!

Ingredients -
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup to 1 1/3 cup M&M's
Directions -
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and set aside. 
  • Melt 1/3 cup butter. Add 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar and mix well. Cool slightly. 
  • Add egg (beaten) and vanilla and blend well. 
  • Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing well. 
  • Mix in 2/3 cup M&M's. 
  • Spread in 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. 
  • Sprinkle 1/3 to 2/3 cup M&M's on top. 
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. 
  • Enjoy!
Consider making these with your grandchildren and then after they are baked and cooled, wrap several in plastic wrap, tie with a red ribbon and give to an elderly neighbor or someone who needs  their day brightened! Be sure to spend time with your grandchildren praying for the people who you give your special treat to and rejoice with them for the opportunity to share with and encourage others!
