M&M Christmas Cookie BarsPosted by Cupcake Kelly on Dec 14, 2012 in Brownies & Squares | 4 comments
I actually made these last year to share with the office. Since it was after Christmas I decided to save the post. When I made these I was looking for a Christmas blondie recipe. They ended up tasting like cookies but in bar form.
I was thinking that if I took these out of the oven five minutes sooner they would be softer and more blondie like. I bought the bag of mini green and red M&M’s at Wal-Mart on one of my US trips.
It was a horribly gray day so these photos aren’t that great.
2/3 cup butter
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
3/4 cup mini M&M's
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C. Grease a 9x9 inch pan. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
- In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg whites and vanilla nd beat until combined.
- Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until just combined. Fold in the M&M's and chocolate chips.
- Spread into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
