I liked the idea of this recipe. Did it with chocolate chips instead of M&Ms, which led to minor burnt chocolate smell. But a cool recipe.

What a find - these brownies are so rich and delicious! I used BC Chocolate Chunk brownie mix - maybe that added to the richness. Definitely will become one of my standard recipes. Thank you!

Sorry, Karen, but I think you might be mistaken. The "Oh My" in your D-LUX Chocolate Chip Cookies most definitely belongs here. WOWEEEE! So good...definitely dangerous!!! I made them with 2 eggs and they came out nice and fudgy surrounded by the lightly crunchy, very colorful base/topping. A BIG, BIG hit. Your bio says you like to cook "mostly healthy" things for your lucky family...I bet these don't count. LOL:) You're one of my favorite chefs. Please keep up the good work!
