M&M Marbled Brownies

M&M Marbled Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1 box (8 oz.) reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package brownie mix (choose directions for the cake-style brownies)
  • 1 cup M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies

Instructions

  1. 1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with the sugar. Add the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  2. 2. Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions. Spoon 2/3 of the brownie batter into a parchment-lined 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Spoon the reserved cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter. Now scrape the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese mixture. Swirl the tip of a knife through the batter to make a marbled effect. Press M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies into the batter.
  3. 3. Bake for 45-50 minutes in a preheated, 350-degree oven until slightly moist in the center. Cool completely before cutting 8x4 into 1½-inch squares.

Apple Whip Dessert

By contributing writer Andrea Green

Homemade Apple Whip Dessert might be our new family favorite of all time. At least it is at this time of year when apples and apple spice make such a lovely pair.

Apple Whip Dessert | The Happy Housewife

This recipe is patterned after the ultra popular Pineapple Whip served at Disney World. Pineapple Whip has long been a sought-after treat by visitors to the park. If you’ve ever experienced it, you will want to try this spin on the recipe.

When making a dessert for a special occasion, like Thanksgiving, I believe homemade is best. Therefore, this recipe is from scratch using whole food ingredients.

However, I’m not against taking a shortcut or two. I believe you can make a darn good recipe from chunky applesauce, apple pie spice and frozen whipped cream. It might not be quite the same, but I bet it will still make you the hit of the meal!

Speaking of Thanksgiving, do you know of anyone who follows a gluten-free diet? This recipe would be a perfect substitute for the traditional apple pie!
