M&M Christmas Cookie Bars
Updated: Nov 3
Happy December! Now that we are in the last month until 2020 (wowza!) I wanted to share some new treats for the holiday season. First up are these delicious M&M Christmas Cookie Bars that are delicious and easy to make.
The method is pretty well identical to making my famous chocolate chip cookies, just with new steps at the end. Enjoy!
1 cup of unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of golden brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup of Christmas M&M's, plus extra for topping
1 cup of mini chocolate chips, plus extra for topping
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
Beat butter and sugars together until fluffy.
Add in eggs one at a time and vanilla until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add into the wet mixture until completely combined and smooth.
Add M&M's and mini chocolate chips (remember to save some for topping), and stir.
Transfer cookie dough to prepared baking dish.
Press in remaining M&M's, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips into the top.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting, and enjoy!
