Holiday Brownies

Comment on this recipe

Short on time this holiday season and want to give or serve a homemade tasting festive holiday sweet? Try making Holiday Brownies. They are quick and easy to make and will receive rave reviews from your co-workers, friends and family. These bars can be given with some homemade hot chocolate mixture as a nice gift. Cut the bars in triangle shapes and place in a gift tin or serving tray with a jar of homemade hot chocolate mix attached.

Ingredients

Crust:
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup red and green holiday M&M candies
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts (can substitute pecans or walnuts)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 package fudge or double chocolate brownie mix

Instructions

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients and mix. Take one cup of the mixture and side aside for the topping. Take the remaining mixture and firmly pat it into a 15x10-inch baking pan. Prepare brownie mix according to directions on the box. Spread the brownie mixture over the crust already in the pan. Sprinkle the reserved mixture over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean. Cool. Cut into square or triange shaped bars. Makes 5 dozen.
