  2. Put the butter, sugars and cocoa into a saucepan on a low heat. Gently melt together, stirring regularly so the mixture doesn’t catch. Once the mixture has started to come together, take off the heat, tip into a your mixing bowl and leave to cool for 5 mins.
  3. Use a whisk or wooden spoon to beat the eggs, one by one, into the mixture. When they’re completely incorporated and the mixture is smooth and shiny, fold in the flour and 90g of the M&Ms.
  4. Tip the mixture into the prepared tin, then scatter a few more M&MS on top of the brownie mixture. Bake for 35 mins.
