M&M and Oreo Cookie Bars ðŸªðŸ«


A super quick, easy and perfect dessert for cookie lovers! It takes about 5 minutes to prep and is ready just under half an hour! how amazing is that!

I saw the limited edition M&M’s in the grocery store for the Rio games going on these days  (hats off to so much talent!) 💚💛💙 and thought why not try something with these. I was up until 2 A.M baking these goodies and then overeating these because they really turned out just right! you get the dense  cookie texture with the added flavours of M&Ms and Oreos! This was the perfect treat coming home from my lazy attempts at my dissertation.

The best thing about these is you can substitute almost any of your favourite biscuits and chocolates into this recipe!M&M& Oreo Cookie bars:

Ingredients:

  • 113 grams (½ cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • ½ cup M&M’s
  • 14-16 Oreos (chopped)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) . Line a  8 x 8 inch baking tray with aluminium foil, spray some cooking  spray and set aside
  • Melt the butter in a pan or the microwave
  • Add the egg ( make sure the butter isn’t too hot for the egg to scramble haha)
  • Add in the vanilla and brown sugar and whisk until smooth
  • Mix in the flour until its combined ( avoid over mixing)
  • Stir the Oreos in the batter
  • Put the batter in the baking tray ( us a spatula to level the top as the batter will be a bit thick)
  • sprinkle the M&M’s over the top and lightly press them down with the spatula
  • Bake for about 20-22 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted come out clean ( you might get a few moist crumbs on the tooth pick which is fine as long as there is no uncooked batter)
  • Let it cool completely before slicing it! these cookie bars can be stored in airtight container for a week and can even be stored in the freezer for up to 5 months

Hope you guys enjoy this as much as i did! do give it a try and personalise it in any way you like!
