Can I complain about the weather?
I know, totally shocking that I’m not satisfied with the weather in Texas, right?
But y’all, all of Fort Hood has been flooded this week and it’s ruining my life. It took me an hour to find my way home the other night because all the roads to my neighborhood had rivers flowing over them or were already blocked by cops. And it was midnight and my poor babysitter was stuck at my house and all I wanted to do was eat nachos in bed while rewatching last week’s Survivor.

Hey guys! Are you shocked that I have more cookies for you?
I’m all cookies, all the time right now.
We have a bunch of new neighbors moving in right now (military community) and I have never been more excited for new people. They’re not even out of their moving trucks before I’m trying to hand tins of cookies to them.
I think baking is officially my favorite thing about the holidays.
I picked up ingredients for these yummy M&M’S® Brownie Cookies recently from the baking aisle at my local Walmart. The Walmart baking aisle has become my home in recent weeks – they have literally everything I need for my holiday baking.
Anyway, so what you need for these cookies is a box of Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix, Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Vanilla Flavored Frosting, and M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits.
And then you need some vegetable oil, eggs, a tiny bit of flour, but that’s it!
Super simple and fuss free!
These cookies are so delicious. The taste of brownies with frosting and M&M’S®? I’m all about them!
Plus, they’re easy enough for my kids to do the bulk of the work. So we got the gift of family time by baking together and then we were able to gift the cookies to our newest neighbors. Sweet treats are definitely two gifts in one!
Are you giving any goodies away as gifts this year? I think everyone in my life is getting cookies and fudge!
If you’re planning to stock up on Pillsbury™ and M&M’S®, make sure you take advantage of the Ibotta offer at Walmart!
(Sidenote: I insist that you download Ibotta immediately if you don’t already have it. I’ve been using it for years and my lifetime earnings is at $224.85!)
I could eat brownies for every meal and not get tired of them.
I don’t. (Usually.) But I could.
Brownies are my go-to for gatherings. They’re easier to transport than cupcakes, they’re always popular, and there are so many ways to jazz up a regular brownie.
Like these Candy Bar Brownies that I made the other day!
I stocked up on my favorite Pillsbury brownie mixes at Walmart recently. You guys, if you haven’t taken advantage of the $.75 off 3 Pillsbury products in the Ibotta app, you are crazy. It’s the perfect opportunity to fill your pantry with brownie mixes or cake mixes or frostings! That way you’re never more than a few minutes away from a sweet treat.
Thanks to the Pillsbury brownie mix, these brownies came together in no time and taste like you spent way more time on them than you really did. You just follow the box instructions and then stir in chopped candy bars and candy coated chocolates.
I used 3 different candy bars – the cookie based one added a bit of crunch, the caramel one melted and created delicious pockets of caramel, and the peanut butter cups were just simply amazing in the brownies. Plus, the crunchy candy coated chocolates? Perfection. Each bite is like a totally different brownie.
I took these over to my neighbors and they loved them! And they couldn’t believe how easy they were to make!
I’ve bought myself more stuffed animals holding hearts than I’d like to admit.
I’ve forced my kids to sit down and scribble their name on 20 cartoon-themed cards.
I’ve made my Valentine’s Day date with some takeout sushi and my DVR.
I am ready.
I even made brownies. Topped with cheesecake because cheesecake is perfect for a romantic dinner for two or if you’re all alone.
I mean, cheesecake solves every problem. Right?
But then I swirled some raspberry jam into the cheesecake to make it extra festive.
I used my fave Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownies so it came together really quick and easily. I stocked up on the Pillsbury brownie mixes at Walmart last week when I did those cute football brownies and they’ve come in really handy. Sometimes you just need fast brownies! Or fast brownies with cheesecake on top!
Once these brownies are baked, you just top them with a quick cheesecake mixture and swirl some raspberry jam into the cheesecake.
They turned out so delicious and how pretty would they be for Valentine’s Day?
