Mini M&M Cookie Bars

Colorful and mini. Perfect for a 1 year olds birthday party, right?! I made these cookie bars just for that reason. Really easy and delicious. So, trying not to eat all the M&M’s… let’s go make some cookie bars!

What you will need:

9 x 13 inch baking pan

2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 white sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12 ounce bag mini m&m’s divided

Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit. Grease and line your pan with parchment paper with the edges hanging over the sides.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside. In a large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat the butter and both sugars until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Gently fold in 1 cup of the m&m’s.

Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. I found it easiest to use my hands. Sprinkle the remaining m&m’s evenly on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the bars are lightly golden brown on top. Let cool completely before removing from pan and cutting. Enjoy!
