I made these for Bob to take on the camping trip with the Young Men too. None came home so I’m assuming they were a hit. All I had on hand were red, white and blue M&M’s so they got patriotic treats but of course any M&M’s will do.
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup M&M’s
1 Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.
2 Whisk together flour, cocoa, soda, salt and cornstarch in bowl.
3 Whisk together butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl for about 2 minutes or until sugar starts dissolving. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
4 Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips.
5 Press dough into pan and sprinkle M&M’s over the top, pressing them slightly into dough.
6 Bake 18 – 20 minutes or until dough appears dry on top.
7 Cool completely before cutting.
