Peanut Cookie Bars are a simplified version of a classic cookie. And they’re jam-packed with M&Ms!
I didn’t really plan on making these bars. But, they just kind of happened.
I made a huge mistake. The last time I ordered from Nuts.com, I somehow reasoned that it would be a great idea to order a bag of peanut butter M&Ms. Have you tried these? I’m generally just a peanut M&Ms kind of girl, but good heavens!
To save ourselves from just eating all of them directly from the bag, I decided to make cookies. Then, as a combination of the size of the M&Ms and my unwillingness to scoop cookies, they became cookie bars.
These bars are based on my go-to peanut butter cookie recipe (which you can see in action here and here). They’ll certainly work as cookies, although you might make them a tad bigger to accommodate the size of the peanut butter M&Ms.
And, of course, you can substitute some other equally delicious thing for the M&Ms. Any variety will work, or just use chocolate chips or some other small or chopped candy bar.
