Copycat Cosmic Brownies: Thick, fudgy brownies smothered in silky smooth chocolate ganache, and topped with M&M candies.

 Copycat Cosmic Brownies

I always hear adults talking about how busy kids are today. From sports, to music lessons, and even karate it seems like they are always headed somewhere.

However, I don’t think this is a recent phenomena. Every Tuesday I had to rush from dance class, to soccer. This inevitably resulted in having to eat dinner in the car.

My typical meal was a toaster pizza (an actual pizza made in the toaster). Oh how I miss those! I also usually grabbed either zebra cakes or cosmic brownies from the vending machine.

No matter how hard I try I can’t ever recreate that toaster pizza. But I can create an even more delicious version of Cosmic Brownies. My version is thick and ultra fudgy. They’re also made with m and ms instead of unidentified candy bits (unless you’re into that).
