M&M Cookie Bars

This past month has been such an amazing month! Is anyone out there with me on this!? I really hope so because I can’t seem to contain my excitement! I was proposed to by the love of my life and I feel so blessed! You would think that news would be the only big highlight of my month but add my dream job on the side and it’s a perfect dish! I can finally say HARD work has paid off.

Boy was is really hard climbing up that mountain but now it seems so small. Stay with me here. There is no mountain you can’t overcome. Put on your sneakers and run up that mountain! Ok, maybe not run but you know what I mean.

I have baked these suckers like 100 times. I LOVE them. I am not the best baker, I leave that up to my friend that loves to bake. Me? Not so much BUT I love trying. That moment when any baked good actually looks good is a big pat on the back for me, from me. Yea. Moving on, you have to try these! They are chewy inside and crunchy on the outside. AMAZING. Don’t believe me? Good! Try it, than we can talk. Did you see how convincing I am to get you to bake!? So go on and bake already! If you have a get together, dinner, birthday or any type of party ever invented, and take a batch of these M&M Cookie Bars, seriously, you won’t regret it. You will A. Look like a professional baker, B. probably be the only one who actually backed something at home that you didn’t buy, which brings me to C. you are the hero of the starving souls that crave something sweet.
I am going to be giving a giveaway next week and it’s my very first time. Therefore, it will be a good one! So stay tuned.  By the way:
