For those that know me, you know that I have a really big family, 6 kids and a granddaughter to be exact. 3 of my kids are adults and the other 3 are much younger. Recently our daughter and her daughter moved in, so our house is now bustling with kids and often times everyone is going in different directions, so in an effort to bring everyone together, we like to choose one day out of the week to celebrate family game night with M&M’s® Inspired Brownie Dominoes as our night time treat.

Game Night with M&M's® Brownie Dominoes

 Family game night is a great way for our family to sit down with one another, laugh and create memories. Sometimes we laugh and sometimes there are tears, especially when the 3 year old picks the ‘Go to Jail’ card and sometimes a board is flipped when things don’t go someone’s way. Whatever the incident, game night memories are the best! To prepare for our weekly game night, we first had to go to Walmart and pick up a huge bag of M&M’s® in the candy aisle so that my daughter and I could make M&M’s® Inspired Brownie Dominoes. After I grabbed the M&M’s® I went directly to the toy aisle and bought Hasbro® Jenga and Classic Monopoly. I was excited because my younger girls had never played the Classic Monopoly game and I knew that they would love it and that a lot of new memories would be created.

M&M's® and Hasbro® Games

Once we got home my daughter and I started preparing for game night by making the brownies. This is a simple recipe that does not have many steps and is a fun recipe that your kids can help you with. I used boxed brownie mix but if you have a fabulous homemade brownie recipe that is fine also. After I prepared the brownie mix I stirred in 1 cup of M&M’s® and then poured the mix into a greased cake pan and baked.

Prepare Brownies

Once the brownies have finished cooking you will want to let them cool completely. After they have cooled, you will cut them into rectangles. My biggest tips are to use a pizza cutter and to cut outside the crispy part of the brownie edge. You will only want the soft brownie as your dominoes not the crunchy edges.

Once the brownies have been cut, carefully move them onto a prep plate. Since my brownies were more of a ‘cake like’ brownie, I had to use a sharp knife and scrape the top of the brownie off. I then reshaped the brownie to make the sides much more smoother and shaped.

Reshape the Domino Brownie

After the brownies are shaped, I placed some white store bought icing into a plastic bag and cut the tip of the bag off. Don’t make the same mistake I did and cut too big of a hole. I then made a thin line across the middle of the brownie to create two sides.

Making M&M's® Domino Brownies

After the center line has been created you can then decorate the brownies with M&M’s® and make them into dominoes. To help the M&M’s® stick onto the brownies you can dab a small amount of icing onto the back of them. It is that simple!

Our family game night was so much fun. After my 3 year old calmed down from having been sent to jail, my 10 year old landed on Park Place and had to hand all of her money to me. Sadly, I did not come in first place, but I came in second place. My adult daughter, the banker, came in first place.

Game Night

Family game nights bring families closer together, teaches listening skills, creates conversation, and most importantly creates memories. Life moves quicker than we would like, so take some time and play a game and grab a big bag of M&M’s® that you can munch on while playing a game with your family.
