The Desperate Housewives star is the voice behind the new chocolate character, who is the sixth M&M's character to star in ad campaigns and TV slots.

The museum features nearly 20 commissioned art pieces created with real milk chocolate that tell Ms. Brown's life story. If you're not lucky enough to be in New York, you can see a virtual tour of the Museum of Chocolate Art at www.facebook.com/mms.
