Did you guys check out the #chocolateparty 1st birthday last month?  I hope you entered to win some of the amazing prizes.  Or at the very least checked out all of the chocolate recipes from the whole month!  Now that #chocolateparty is headed into year 2, I finally decided to make some brownies.  They are my all time favorite dessert, but for some reason this is the first time I am making them incorporating the challenge ingredient.  Which for October happened to be………Candy!!!

Have you seen the new Pumpkin Spiced M&M’s at Target?  As soon as I saw them, I had to pick up a bag to see what they were like.  I love pumpkin and chocolate together, so I figured they had to be good.  They are solid chocolate all the way through, with pumpkin spices mixed in.  They are like fall in a bite of candy.  For the brownies they were perfect.  It gave the hint of pumpkin without being full on pumpkin.  Which, to be honest I am not ready for yet.  We are into October, you would think I would be on board, but I am still stuck on apples.  Give me another week, I will get there.  In January you will probably have to yell at me to stop!

If you are a regular around here, you know that I land firmly in the fudgy brownie camp.  So these brownies are super fudgy.  Frosting is not necessary, but because I tend to go overboard, I sampled them with some frosting.  Just doing my job, so I can give you the best advice as to how to eat them.  Right?  The verdict.  If you love frosting, go for it.  They really are sweet and fudgy enough without it, but I also believe that you can never go wrong when frosting is involved.  So either way, get your hands on a bag of the M&M’s so you can try it!

  1. It is nice to know I am not alone in needing to really exhaust apples before I am ready to move on to pumpkin lol. I feel like as a blogger I should have pumpkin everywhere!

    I have not seen these M&Ms but I am not intrigued. Great brownies!
