Easy Cookie Bars

M&M Cookie Bar 2Do you need  a quick dessert or treat you can bake? Do you need something easy to make with the kids? Or perhaps, you just want something sweet to eat?  I wasn’t going to publish this recipe because it’s so simple and there’s probably hundreds of variations of it. But I haven’t made anything new to blog about this week. And I know I always like to find quick, semi-homemade recipes like this. So why not share?


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups M&M’s  (I used 1 cup regular plain M&M’s and 1 cup dark chocolate M&M’s)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Line a 9×9 baking pan with aluminum foil and coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl combine cake mix, eggs, melted butter and oil. Stir until smooth.
  4. Stir in M&M’s and spread batter into prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake for 25-28 minutes or until lightly golden at the edges.
  6. Allow to completely cool before cutting into squares.

  1. Joann, you know I love your cooking and this is really so easy even I could make it. Wish I had it now as I don’t have anything ready for dinner and this would be a good substitute for dinner with a glass of wine. Hope you have a lovely week.
