M&M Christmas Cookie Bars

M&M Blondies

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.
