Loaded Monster Cookie Bars

1/2 cup butter
1 egg
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mini candy bars (IE. Snickers, Milky Way, Nestle Grand, Hershey’s Chocolate Bar)
2 small pkts M and Ms (or approximately 1/3 cup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 8 X 8” baking dish.

Gather your chocolate and caramel goodies.  Chop the mini candy bars into 4-5 pieces.  You will want about 1 cup total.  Any more than that and it will be too much.  Set aside.  
Melt butter in small glass bowl in microwave.  In medium bowl add butter, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla.  Mix well. 
Mix together flour, oats, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture and mix just until incorporated.  Mix in chopped candy bars. 

Dump into baking dish. Smooth top. You need to make sure any caramel part is covered with batter. Press M and Ms into top of bar batter.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  (Be careful not to poke a candy bar or it will skew your results!) Cool completely before cutting.
