  • Preheat the oven to 350 and grease down an 8x8 pan with melted butter or cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour and Dutch cocoa powder.
  • In a large bowl with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer, beat together your butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add in your egg, egg yolk, maple syrup, and vanilla and beat on high for 2 minutes.
  • Continue beating at a low speed as you add the flour mixture. Beat until the flour mixture is fully incorporated into your batter.
  • Move your batter to the pan and spread to the pan’s edges. Bake for 45 minutes, or until you can remove a toothpick from the brownies without the dough sticking to the toothpick.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely as you prepare your frosting. In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and then add the heavy cream. Stir until combined and creamy. 
  • Pour the frosting onto the brownies and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool. When the frosting is cool, sprinkle miniature M&M’s on top to your liking.


Storage - You can store these in an airtight container on the counter for one week. Additionally, you can cut them up and store them in the freezer for about a month. Simply set one on the counter or pop one in the oven for about a minute when you are craving a chocolatey treat.
