When it comes to candy, M&Ms are hard to beat. They've got the chocolate and the candy shell. They're small and easy to snack on. And they're even easier to throw into one of your favorite dessert recipes. M&M recipes are almost better than eating this candy-shelled chocolate as is (because you get to double down on desserts, of course).
Most bakers add M&Ms to their cookies, and this is a smart move. But there's no reason to stop there. M&Ms make sense in pies, dessert bars, on cakes and cupcakes. Check out all the ways you can bake with M&Ms.
