- The first step is buying the M&M's! In order for the candies to melt correctly, you must use regular M&M's. This type allows the chocolate to melt evenly.
- Next, empty out some M&M's onto a microwave safe plate. You can use as much or as little as you want, so long as there is only one layer of M&M's.
- You're ready for the microwave! Place the plate in the middle and heat it on high for 1 minute. Make sure to keep checking on it at 10-15 second intervals. Shake the plate around each time you check it to prevent any candies from burning.
- Once the M&M's feel hot and look a little oily, they are ready! Let them cool a little, and then try one. If it's hard on the outside, and gooey on the inside, then you are done! If it still feels a little lumpy or uneven, then put it back in the microwave for 10 second bursts as you check it.
Melted M&M's are delicious and fun-to-eat on their own, but there are many other ways to eat them. The best is probably on top of ice cream. The combination of the cold ice cream and the hot, melty M&M's is a natural pair.
A similar base is pudding, which is good for those with temperature sensitive teeth. Jello and rice pudding are also good alternatives.
The options are endless for this sweet treat. Try experimenting with new flavors by topping new dishes with your melted M&M's! Enjoy.
