This recipe is truly amazing for the holidays. In total it took about 30 minutes of prep time and 40 minutes to bake. It came out delicious and was loved by many. What makes this recipe great is that the ingredients are simple, and you don’t have to have very much culinary expertise. Also this dessert is very flexible as you can add as many chocolate chips or M&M’s as you want due to your personal preference, and it won’t change the outcome or baking time. I would definitely recommend this dessert for your holiday dinner because of the simplicity of the recipe and fast prep and baking time.
