M and M Cookie Bars, Yum!

Valentine Cookies, M&M cookie bars

I invited the kids to make M&M cookie bars with me this past Saturday morning.  Only Sassyfras took me up on the offer.  Little J was interested in a project he was working on and Juiciness was busy playing Legos with Daddy.  I'll skip ahead and say that it took no invitation to come to eat them!

I used the recipe found here, and substituted the chocolate chips with Valentine M&M's.  It was an easy recipe and so good!  The cookie bars took a little longer to bake than the recipe calls for the cookies.

Christy at Snacks and Stories made M&M cookies this past week too and had a great book to go with it. You can find her recipe and book recommendation here.  She has a bunch of fun books and easy snacks on her blog.

Sweet! I love the times when my daughter is so engaged in something that she declines the chance to play with me. That happens... oh, about never :)
