What can you make out of M&M’s besides separating the colors and only eating the green ones? (not me). You can make this wonderful, easy, and delicious Christmas treat that I know everyone in your family will love. It’s quite simple to make and you can find the ingredients in any grocery stores, or you probably have them all in your kitchen. This recipe will make about 6-8 servings with generous portions.
Those M&M colorful candies are such a classic treat, I don’t think I can find anyone who hasn’t eaten this candy. Today, I want to incorporate this classic treat into a cookie bar and just take them to a whole different level with my recipe and I want to share with you mommies everywhere so you can make it too.
There’s nothing that you can add to this delicious treat that will ruin it. If anything, it will just make more amazing. Add some melted chocolate, dust some powdered sugar, a scoop of ice cream for every serving, honey, whipped cream, it’s all up to you!
