The biggest movie award show of the year is here! The Oscars are filled with gorgeous people wearing beautiful clothes and at my house a nice layout of treats. What? I’m not the one trying to squeeze into those amazing dresses and get judged about it, so I can have a few M&Ms if I want.
To us here at Busy Bee Blogger, anything can be a great reason to entertain, and of course the Oscars lets us add a little glamour to the mix. I like to break out my DIY gold mercury glass mason jar candle holders, some flowers and some pretty napkins. What would be perfect to celebrate the Academy Awards is a spread in matte black and gold. Very elegant.
The one thing you cannot go without when celebrating the movies are M&Ms. These are always a good idea, even if you’re watching the movies (or the Oscars) all on your own, there is just something about pairing the chocolately goodness of M&Ms with movies, and movie stars. I have my favorite types of M&Ms for different movies: milk chocolate goes with drama, peanut pairs well with comedy, and crispy is perfect for SciFi.
For the Oscars, we are not only setting out the different M&Ms in festive glass wear, we have decided to go full on celebrating and make M&M brownies. For these delicious treats we just used a ready made box mix, used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and then sprinkled milk chocolate M&Ms over the top right before placing it in the oven.
We also chose to use a spring form pan to give it the nice round shape. Everybody loves these and having them with the M&Ms on top and in wedges is a little more fun. M&Ms make everything a little more fun.
How do you use M&Ms to celebrate?
