Mint M&M Sugar Cookie Bars


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup M and M's® (I used mint)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8"x8" pan with parchment paper so the paper hangs over the sides OR spray the pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter and the sugar. Stir to combine with wooden spoon. Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the butter/egg mixture until it comes together to form a thick dough.
  4. Press the dough into the prepared baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle M&M's over the surface. Carefully press the candies down into the dough.
  6. Return the dough to the oven for another 10-12 minutes. The surface of the cookies should be white with barely golden edges.
  7. Cool completely before slicing into 18 rectangular shaped bars.
