If your children are anything like mine, they’re always hungry! Especially after school! Next time you are thinking of making an afternoon snack, I would recommend the M&M’s Brownie Batter Dip!
I must admit since this snack has a lot of sugar in it, I would probably save it for a Friday afternoon. We try to limit sugar where we can, and with this having cookies and candy in it, it would definitely be an end of the week treat! The M&M’s Brownie Batter Dip is definitely something the kids can help you make! Emma loves being in the kitchen with me, and this is a perfect treat to help me with.
M&M’s Brownie Batter dip is the best of both worlds! We (my husband and I) actually drank milk while eating some of this! It gives you the cookies, brownie and milk vibe, so topping it off with milk or water is your best bet, anything else would be too sweet!
M&Ms Brownie Batter Dip
- ½ cup butter, at room temperature
- 8 ounce block cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 ½ cups brownie mix
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup Mini M&M and more for the top
- In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and cream cheese together until smooth.
- Slowly add in brownie mix.
- Add milk until it reaches the desired consistency.
- Stir in the Mini M&Ms.
- Transfer to the serving bowl and sprinkle with more Mini M&Ms
I always like making desserts with my daughter because that is what she has the most fun making with me! Emma will help me with anything in the kitchen, but we love making desserts together! And by helping me we are working on those coordination skills, gross motor skills, and even working on fine motor skills as well! I don’t always like sitting workbooks in front of them to learn at home, we (Darrick and I) have realized by having them help us we are teaching them life skills! You can even catch DJ helping me in the kitchen from time to time, granted I think he has more fun when my husband pulls out the power tools, but he will help. However, cooking doesn’t hold his attention unless I am sneaking him a taste of whatever we’re making…he’s more of the taste-testing team!
