With my husbands birthday coming up I was delighted to develop a recipe for Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser to celebrate him and the return of M&M’s® Crispy! This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small commission if you purchase through these links.
My husband is a tough one when it comes to his birthday. If you’ve spent any time around this blog you know how much I love to throw a themed party, but that just isn’t his thing. Instead, all he wants is really good food. He’s not much of a cake person (don’t get me wrong, he’ll eat it, but he prefers other treats) so this year I was so excited to make him this decadent M&M’s® Crispy dessert pizza. It’s out of this world delicious. There may be a couple of steps, but they are WORTH IT! Trust me!
The M&M’s® Crispy add something to this dessert that you’ll really appreciate. You see, you’ve got the soft, chewy brownie, the silky frosting and smooth luxurious caramel. It needed a crunchy bite to add dimension – and load on even more chocolate. The crispy rice center really makes it a match made in heaven!

2- Whip up that chocolate buttercream (also from this brownie recipe) – you want it light and fluffy so really whip that butter before adding anything else! Don’t be stingy when putting it on the brownie. Make sure you get lots of peaks and valleys too, that’s where the caramel can pool and it turns into a little caramel Jacuzzi for the bits of candy.
3- Drizzle on the caramel. Yep, it’s just a jar of ice cream topping caramel, but it tastes so perfect paired with the other elements. Remember all those valleys you created in the frosting? Fill ’em up! You may not use it all, and you may find yourself eating it with a spoon at midnight when you are up editing photos of the dessert pizza you put it on. 🙂 Thank me later.
4- Top it with the candy. You can leave them whole, I decided to cut them in half with a serrated knife just to make sure everyone knew the crispy goodness they were about to partake of.
