These brownies are delicious and fun if you're looking to make something a tad different. :) I got this recipe from my Momma... and I made them for a 'contest' at church while I was visiting my parents back home (oh.. and these brownies won;). Of course all the brownies there were yummy.. I really don't think there's such a thing as a bad brownie. But these are also pretty to look at, too. ;)
Double Decker Confetti Brownies
recipe from my Momma :)
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups flour, divided
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
- 1 cup M&M's, divided (mini or regular)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease 13x9 baking pan; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and sugars until light & fluffy; beat in eggs and vanilla. Then, in a medium bowl, combine 2 1/4 cups flour, baking powder and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Divide batter in half.
Blend together cocoa and melted butter; stir into one half of the dough. Then, spread cocoa dough evenly into baking pan. Stir remaining 1/4 cup flour and 1/2 cup M&M's into remaining dough; spread evenly over cocoa dough. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup M&M's.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until edges start to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely before cutting.
