I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade recipes and an even bigger supported of every box cake mix recipe I can find. 

I just do not have time to make cake from scratch, and I can’t justify saving money by cooking from the raw ingredients when I simply don’t bake that often.

However, when I do, I definitely want it to be beautiful and delicious.

These M&M’S mini bundt cakes perfectly fit the bill.

Sweet, tiny, iced, and sprinkled with crushed M&M’s, these little darlings are perfect this time of year as an Easter recipe for brunch or even a Mother’s Day brunch recipe.

And I put the emphasis on brunch because brunch comes with mimosas.

Enough said. #amiright

How to Make the M&M’S Mini Bundt Cakes

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Prepare your cake mix according to the box directions.
  • Lightly grease a mini bundt cake pan.
  • Fill each cavity half way full with cake batter. Discard any leftovers.
  • Bake for about 18-23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Let cool on the cooling rack.
  • Assemble a piping bag with either a small tip or none at all.
  • Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe container for 1 minute. Stir and repeat in 30 second increments until fully melted.
  • Spoon the melted candy mixture into the piping bag.
  • Drizzle over cakes in a back and forth motion around each cake. Moving quickly and using a small piping tip will give you thinner lines while going sans piping tip and moving more slowly will result in a thicker icing.
  • Roughly crush M&M’s in a ziplock bag or between two paper towels, making sure to leave the pieces fairly large. Sprinkle on top while the icing is still setting.
