Who doesn’t love M&Ms? I know all of my kids (and when I mean my kids I’m including Mr. Newman)

M&M Cookie Bars


2 c. flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

12 T. butter, softened

1 c. sugar

1/2 c. brown sugar (packed)

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

11 oz bag mini baking M&Ms –I just used regular M&Ms  (save a few to go on top)


Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.

Mix together in a large bowl: sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Mix for about a minute, or until fluffy. Then slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.

Fold in M&Ms and then place dough in 9×13 pan lined with foil. Then place a few M&Ms on top.

Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes clean.
