Patriotic M&M’s Cookie Bars

I was wanting to make some cookie bars with M&M’s and since it’s so close to the 4th of July, I thought I might as well make them patriotic! So I used mini red, white, and blue M&M’s and some fun sprinkles, and theses Patriotic M&M’s Cookie Bars turned out so colorful and yummy! They are thick and chewy and very chocolatey, because they also have some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips mixed in. If that sounds like too much chocolate (is there such a thing?), you can always leave out the mini chocolate chips.

Red Velvet M&Ms Bars

You’ve probably heard of cookie exchanges…they happen quite a bit around Christmastime. Well, how about a Valentine cookie exchange? I was invited to one a few years ago and it was great! It’s always fun to make (and eat) Valentine-themed treats!  I was a little short on time, so I needed to make something fairly easy, but still wanted it to be very yummy. I had seen lots of recipes for cake mix bars and cookies, so I thought I’d come up with my own version of Red Velvet bars made with cake mix. Any Red Velvet recipe seems appropriate for Valentine’s Day, right? Continue reading

Candy Corn M&M’s Crispy Treats

Crispy treats are great, and I think they’re even better when you make them with extra add-ins! Last winter, I made some Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats which were really good, so I thought I’d try an autumn version with candy corn. I found this recipe at MyRecipes.com which had both candy corn and M&M’s. I thought I’d add some chopped peanuts too, since I like the candy corn-chocolate-peanut combination (you could use cashews instead of peanuts, if you like).

Easter Trail Mix

Easter Trail Mix @ NancyCAs I’ve mentioned before, something that’s hard for me to resist when I see the long aisle of Easter candy at the store are those malted milk speckled eggs–malt balls covered with a candy coating. I eat way too many of them! One year, I told myself I would not buy any of those eggs unless I used them in a recipe. So I came up with this Easter Trail Mix—a blend of chocolatey sweets mixed in with some healthy ingredients. The mini speckeled eggs and pastel M&M’s give the mix plenty of chocolatey taste and spring color, and the Continue reading
