{peanut butter m&m brownies}

If you ask my husband what his favorite dessert is, he'll tell you, without hesitating, that it's brownies. Of all the desserts and treats that I make, cookies and pies and cakes and tarts, he'll always go back to brownies. Add some peanut butter in there, and we're both happy. That’s probably why we love these brownies made with Peanut Butter M&M’s® so much. They’re pretty much my favorite candy anyway, so I wasn’t too disappointed when I bought one too many bags!
I usually use cocoa powder when I bake brownies, but this recipe called for melting real chocolate chips. I couldn’t tell that much of a difference, but they definitely tasted amazing! I always have kind of a problem when baking brownies though, and usually overcook them. This time, I was able to pull them out of the oven right in time. I think that the trick with brownies is that you have to pull them out when they’re still a little undercooked. That way they’ll finish cooking when they are cooling, making them gooey and delicious. I’d love to know what your tips for baking brownies are though. There’s always a 50/50 chance that I’ll screw them up…

Chocolate and peanut butter is an unbeatable combination. My most requested dessert, by friends and family, would be my oreo truffles. The recipe is pretty simple, but it's a bit tedious to make them, so I reserve making them for special occasions. I'm sure one of these days I'll get around to doing a tutorial about it on my blog.

Mmmm, those sound delicious! My go-to dessert is chocolate cherry bundt cake. You just substitute the oil while making boxed devil's food cake with a can of cherry pie filling--it is the best (and easiest!) cake ever!
