I always like to make an Easter treat for my family. This year we will be celebrating the holiday with family so I wanted to try a recipe to take for dessert that would be kid friendly. I thought, M&M’s are kid friendly and this cookie bar looked great. I found this recipe on the Averie Cooks website and made it as a test for a recent playdate. The kids, and Moms, LOVED them. One Mom said they look and taste like Easter. There wasn’t a morsel left on the plate, the kids (and Moms) devoured them! A tell tale sign of how good they are.
These bar cookies are chock full of chocolate making them a perfect treat or dessert for Easter. Make this recipe even more decadent by using the cookie bar as a base for a sundae. Place a slice on a plate or in a bowl, top with your favorite flavor ice cream and add toppings. Toppings could include whipped cream, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, various candies including chocolate chips and M&M’s of course. The week 4 recipe in the 52 week new recipe challenge is this fun and delicious cookie bar.
