Yesterday my daughter and I made a trip to Walmart to pick up some more…wait for it…baking supplies!  I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you at all since you know me and my crazy baking habits.

We stopped at Goodwill first and wandered there for about 30 minutes.  It was one of those stops where not much jumped out at us to buy.  We did find a really nice winter coat for her that looks absolutely brand new.  Can’t beat $4!!!  And I did find a couple white bowls and a nice mini cutting board.  You can never have too many mini cutting boards as a food photographer.

We finally made it to Walmart and filled our cart with the goods.  You know…things like Reese’s, cream cheese, crescent rolls, and mint chips.  Just the basics :-)

My daughter wanted to look at the clothes, so we wandered over to the girls section where she pointed out some things that she liked.  She has quite the Christmas list going on already.  I saw the cutest cheetah print puffy vest with a black shirt underneath.  My girl loves all things cheetah, and I thought for sure she was going to flip out over it!

She kind of shrugged when I showed it to her and said yes, it was cute!  So I pressed a little bit harder and asked if it was something she wanted now or maybe later.  She shrugged again and said maybe for Christmas.

Now this vest was super cute with hot pink trim and it was the only one in her size, so I was standing there really thinking about buying it then and there.  My daughter walked back over to me and finally said no to buying it.

Her response when I asked why…”Mom, I was just being nice when I said I liked it.  I didn’t want to hurt your feelings.”

Apparently 38 year old moms and 12 year old daughters have very different taste in what is cute!  So, no cute cheetah vest came home with us.  I still can’t believe that little stinker!

I think I am going to remember that answer when she asks where all her candy has disappeared too after Halloween :-)

Dear daughter, I do remember seeing those M&M’s that you had in your bucket, but I have NO idea what might have happened to them.  (Wink, wink!)  Have you asked your brothers?  Oh, they said they didn’t touch them either.  Well, I didn’t want to hurt your feelings and tell you that I stole all of them for another batch of brownies!!

These brownies are so insanely delicious!  They are perfect for cleaning out your cupboards…or for using up some of that Halloween candy you are sure to have laying around after this week.  These start with a box brownie mix, but you could definitely make your own homemade if that is how you roll!  I go back and forth on that one!

As soon as your brownies come out of the oven, you are going to spread a layer of caramel goodness and then top it with mini marshmallows.  Then it goes back into the oven to get toasty!  Make sure you watch the marshmallows!  They go from white to brown so quickly.  I turned away for just a few seconds and almost burned the whole top.

Press mini M&M’s into the toasted marshmallows, and then it is time to exercise that patience!  You could cut into them now, but it is going to be an ooey gooey mess!  It’s better to let them cool.  Go dust or catch up on that TV drama that you missed last week.

Think of all the possibilities with these brownies.  Halloween buckets here I come!!!!

Caramel Marshmallow M&M Brownies

Brownies with caramel, marshmallows, and mini M&M's are so much fun to eat. They are a great way to use up extra candy.


1 brownie mix (for a 9x13 pan) + ingredients
1 cup caramel baking bits
1 Tablespoon milk
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup mini M&M's


  1. Mix up your brownie mix according to the 2 egg directions and bake using the box directions.
  2. In a small saucepan heat the caramel bits and the milk together until melted and creamy. Keep warm. As soon as the brownies come out of the oven, spread the caramel over the top gently. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top. Place back in the 350* oven for 3-4 minutes. Turn on the broiler and heat 1 more minute. Be sure to keep a close eye on the marshmallows, so they do not burn.
  3. Remove the brownies from the oven and sprinkle with the mini M&M's. You will have to gently press them into the toasted marshmallows with your fingers to get them to stick. Let cool. Use a wet knife to cut into 24 squares. Keep in a sealed container on the counter.


*Use a wet knife to cut these brownies. The marshmallows will not stick to the wet knife.

    You, and Sally, @SallysBakingAddiction have to be two of the most creative bakers I’ve seen on the web (and I follow a LOT of blogs). Both of you consistently put out amazing new creations every day. I think I’m just in awe of such creativity. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that you take fabulous pictures. I think I could just get lost on your blog and pin everything! Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing all your delicious creations with those of us with meager creative abilities!

    Hahahaha I was laughing out loud at your story! That is just like my mom and I even up until just a few years ago… but just wait! She’ll probably get more direct with you and be brutally honest about your clothing picks for her. Not that I have personal experience or anything. 😉 These look DE-licious. I think I would have a hard time with the patience part. They look to good to not eat right away!

    Well of course I adore these brownies. How could I not with all those flavors happening in one bar?! But I also love that little letter to your daughter about her lost M&Ms! At least she said something before you bought it, though. The worst is when it just sits in the back of a closet, sad and neglected. My brother would do that with stuff my mom bought lol.

    Hi :)
    I was wondering if it will make a difference if I didn’t put the caramel or is the caramel the same as caramel sauce?
