I adored this take on Hanzel & Gretel (you can read my review here). In this book students at Splendid Academy were fed a constant diet of treats, sweets and other good things to eat to fatten them up. Every student also had a bowl of M&Ms at their desk that they were allowed to eat from all day long and that filled itself back up when it was empty.
As I was reading I of course started craving M&Ms--how could you not? I love M&Ms (especially peanut butter). My favorite thing is to put them in my buttered popcorn at the movies (no calories there I swear). But, I also love them in cookies and brownies. There is just something about a baked M&M that I like. When they are on sale after a holiday I buy quite a few bags for baking with. My favorite item to bake with M&Ms are M&M brownies. I am sure taht there are several recipe out there for M&M brownies, but the easiest is to throw a cup or two into a brownie mix and baked them. The brownies are fudgy and wonderful and the M&Ms are crunchy and chocolaty. Perfection!
What do you like to do with your M&Ms?
