Mint M&M Brownies – The Perfect St. Patrick’s Day Treat

Sharing is caring!

Mint M&M Brownies — the perfect St. Patrick's Day Treat — especially if you use my homemade brownie recipe!

Before you know it, St. Patrick's Day will be here, so I thought I would share with you an easy recipe for Mint M&M Brownies. Instead of using a boxed version, I always make mine from scratch.

Making these brownies only requires just a few simple ingredients, but what puts them over the top are the Mint M&M candies that they are topped with.

How to Make Mint M&M Brownies

If you keep a stocked pantry at home, then you will have no trouble whipping up a batch of these.

To start with you only need  —

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8-inch square pan. I used my Pioneer Woman pan that the kids got me for Christmas. They are a glass version of Pyrex but they have the cute PW logo on the bottom.

In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.

Once you spread the batter in the pan, top it with 1 cup of Mint M&M Brownies.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.

My daughter likes a chewier brownie, so I always undercook mine just a bit. She likes it to be cooked enough it will hold together, but gooey enough that it's almost like brownie batter.

Once they are done, give them a little bit to cool off before you cut them. Then, once you do, the M&M's stay melted and your brownies end up with this amazingly delicious mint flavor.
