I love chocolate. I love sweet treats and desserts. I especially love “dressing up” box cakes and brownies to make them into extra delicious sweet treats. These red, white and blue brownies are a perfect example of semi-homemade squares of deliciousness.

Of course these red, white and blue brownies are perfect for a Memorial Day or Fourth of July event, or really just because! You can easily swap out the colors of the m&m candies and create Valentine and Easter treats!

How to Make Red, White and Blue Brownies

You’ll want to grab a box of brownies that makes the large, 13×9, family size for this recipe. In fact, you might want to just grab two boxes and make a double batch of this sweet treat!

Grab a bag of red, white and blue M&M candies at your local grocery store or order from Amazon.

Once you mix up your batch of brownies, you’ll make the crunchy topping to take your box of brownies to another level! Combining brown sugar, peanuts, oatmeal and butter, this crumb topping bakes to the perfect crunchy-ness.

Once you remove these from the oven, you’ll want to dive into them. Make sure you cool them completely before cutting them into bars. You can easily pair these red, white and blue brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a summertime snack!
