  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 TBS pure vanilla
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 10 oz bag M&M’s® Strawberry


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line a large, heavy duty baking sheet with parchment.
  3. Put the melted butter and cocoa powder in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached.
  4. Mix on medium speed until no lump remain.
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla beating well until thick and smooth about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the sugars and the salt and mix on high speed until well combined about one minute.
  7. Add the flour and mix on low until just combined.
  8. Turn the batter out onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out evenly with an offset spatula
  9. Sprinkle the M&M’s® Strawberry over the top of the batter.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the brownies are just soft to the touch.
  11. Let cool about 10 minutes and then remove the parchment from the baking sheet. Cool the brownies (on the parchment) completely on a wire rack.
  12. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut out the hearts. I used a large 3″ cutter and got 12 brownie cookies. Save the trimmings for snacking.
