If I pull 12 M&M's from the bag, what is the probabiliity that exactly 2 are blue and 3 are brown?

I used the binomial to find the probability of 2 blue and 3 brown, and I want to multiply them together to get the answer, but wouldn't that assume that the two are independent? Obviously they are not, because any time I pull out a blue M&M, it is one time I have not pulled out a brown M&M.

Can someone shed light on how to solve this? Thanks!
