Fudge Brownies Recipe

Easter Fudge Brownies were a hit with my kids. 

I love to bake. My kids love it when I bake. I wanted to make an Easter snack for them. So I whipped up some homemade fudge brownies using a recipe in my grandmother’s cookbook (kind of like a church cookbook and I’m guessing it’s from the 1950’s,  with m&m’s on top. They gobbled them up!  

Check out my recipe for Easter Fudge Brownies below!

What kind of brownies are your favorite? Do you make homemade or from a box? I do both. Just depends on whether I have a box on hand. I love brownies and usually add a handful of chocolate chips but I refrained this time. I’m glad I did. Whew that would have been a bit much I think. Grab your milk or vanilla ice cream and have some brownies with it. You’ll want that milk handy to wash it down!

  1. Those are awesome. I am not hosting Easter this year (because we will be on vacation) for the first time in YEARS, so my mom is doing it. I think I might make some of these to bring with me to her place 🙂

  2. Chelsea says:

    I love brownies! Such a great crowd pleaser 🙂

  3. Oh wow, those look delicious! I want to make some, but I’m afraid I couldn’t help myself from eating the whole pan.

  4. Those do look delicious. I have a ton of cookbooks like that too. I need to pull them out and start experimenting!

  5. Debbie L. says:

    Davey would love these! Adding his favorite candy to the topping makes them even better.

  6. I can see why those were a hit. They would not last long in our house, let me tell you. 🙂

    Those look really good. Those brownies would be great for me to make and bring to my daughter’s Easter party next month to kick off her Easter break. They look really yummy.

  8. Yum! Brownies are a favorite here. Especially the fudgey ones!

  9. gaynycdad says:

    Honey, you could put M&M’s in anything and serve it to me! I read the title of your article and I thought OK, brownies, ho hum. As soon as I scrolled to the picture my mouth started to water!

  10. Jessica says:

    We love brownies here! I think we make a batch once a week. I have no idea why I have never thought to add M&M’s to them but it sure does make sense. Anything with extra chocolate is yummy. Love this recipe!

  11. I am not too picky when it comes to brownies, I love them all! Ha ha! I usually make our brownies from a box mix because it’s just easier that way!

  12. They certainly looks delicious and something that my family would love. I usually make from a box but would love to try these.

  13. I make both, but prefer homemade. Yours looks very yummy. I’d like to try it soon.

    These look so good and I love the pastel colors. Perfect for the dessert table this Spring!

  15. Oh my gosh, those look crazy delicious! I’m going to have to make these with my daughter; she’ll love them. Pinning for later.

    These Easter fudge brownies look delightful. I’m sure my grandkids would love these!

  17. I love brownies with M&M’s on top. These look so delicious that you’re seriously making me think about cheating on my diet!

  18. brownies are one of my favorite desserts. Loving the candy addition

    I’ll be honest; If I find a box of brownies/cake/cookies that tastes amazing, it’s easy for me to be lazy and use that. However, there’s really nothing like homemade. This looks like a great recipe (and so cute with the M&Ms on top)- I’ll have to try this one!
