Chocolate Bon Bons and M&M Brownie Bars

My cousin Kathy has a knack for baking. She loves to bake cookies, fudge and brownies. Last night, at our annual Amador Secret Santa party, she made for us these yummy chocolate covered marshmallows and M&M Fudgy Brownies. I was so excited to hear that the marshmallow recipe is incredibly easy and really fast to make. And the M&M recipe uses your favorite brownie mix. These were a hit with all the kids!


  • 1 c. (6 oz.) semi sweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/2 lb. large marshmallows (25 to 30)
  • 1/2 cup Jimmy's (optional)
In small shallow, glass casserole or mixing bowl, combine chocolate and milk. Cook uncovered 1 minute 30 seconds or until chocolate melts, stirring twice. Place toothpick in each marshmallow. Dip in chocolate and sprinkle Jimmy's on each marshmallow (this is optional). Let cool and serve cold or at room temperature.


  • 1 (21 to 23 ounce) package fudge brownie mix
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 1 cup plain M&M's
Prepare brownie mix according to package for cake-like brownies; spread batter into greased 15 1/2 x 10 1/2-inch jellyroll pan.

Combine nuts, oats, sugar, coconut and butter. Mix well. Sprinkle evenly over brownie mixture. Sprinkle top with 1 cup candies. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes.
