Today I’m happy to be partnering with OXO for their Bake A Difference campaign in support of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit organization founded by two OXO employees inspired by their son’s battle with cancer. During the month of September, OXO is donating $100 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer for every blog post that is dedicated to this campaign. If I can help by baking, I will!
What better dessert to make for kids than brownies, brownies with peanut butter that are topped with M&M’s! These peanut butter brownie magic bars are irresistible. The rich fudgy brownie base is topped with a peanut butter and sweetened condensed mixture. You really can’t go wrong when sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter are involved. Throw in some peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and M&M’s, and you can’t help but have seconds!
Along with donating money for this post about tasty brownies dedicated to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, OXO is also donating 25 cents per specially marked item in support of pediatric cancer. This is part of a $100,000 pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer in 2013. Look for specially marked OXO products at participating retailers!
