Chocolate Peanut Brownies

Do you love Peanut m&m's? Snickers? Chocolate?


You get a whole peanut m&m in each bite of this amazing brownie.

A friend i used to work with 10 years ago gave me this recipe recently. I think that we met 10 years ago just so that, 10 years later she could give it to me!! She warned me it was addictive and lo and behold i was eating it for breakfast.

  • 125 gm butter, melted
  • 1 tin of condensed milk
  • 1 cup SR flour sifted (i never sift :( )
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup coconut ( optional - i didn't put it in.)
  • 1 king size snickers cut into small pieces
  • 1 family size packet of peanut m&m's, kept whole.
  1. Mix everything together together except the m&m's and snickers.
  2. Pour into a lined baking tray - it will rise
  3. Sprinkle with cut pieces of snickers and push m&m's into the mixture until the packet is empty. (I ate quite a few....)
  4. Crushed nuts can be sprinkled on the top  for an extra peanutty taste
  5. Bake 30 mins at 180
  6. Don't remove from the tray until completely cooled or it will fall apart.
I made it at night and cut it in the morning. Yes, it made a fantastic breakfast!

Just try stopping at one!!!

Apricot and Coconut Slice

This slice was also made for a work morning tea and it was another favourite. I have to admit, i ate more of this then the amazing Anzac Slice that i love so much.

Another no bake slice because i am lazy. These are just so simple and effective and when you have 2 kids and work full time, you just don't have time much time to create whizzbang recipes. These taste just as good anyway.

  • 250g pain sweet biscuits, crushed
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 125g butter
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate milk melts, melted.
  1. Line a tray/container with baking paper
  2. Combine biscuits, apricots and coconut in a mixing bowl
  3. Melt condensed milk and butter together in a saucepan
  4. Stir in to dry ingredients
  5. Press mixture in prepared tray
  6. Pour over melted chocolate, allow to set and cut into squares. :)

Cherry Ripe Slice

I made this slice for a morning tea at work and everyone loved it! Its a really easy version and does not require cooking at all!

I didn't tell anyone what was in it....

  • Red/pink food colouring
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 125g melted copha
  • 250g milk coffee biscuits, crushed
  • 200g glace cherries, chopped
  • 175g desiccated coconut
  • 250g dark chocolate
Colour the condensed milk dark pink (this is fun!). Combine with the melted copha and mix with the crushed biscuits, cherries and coconut.

It is that easy.

Press into a lined baking tray/container and refrigerate. When set, pour melted dark chocolate over the top. You can sprinkle coconut and chopped cherries over the top but i had run out.

Place back in the fridge and cut when set.

Place in a container labeled 'stewed plums' so your kids don't find it!
