Christmas M&M Cookie Bars

These Christmas M&M Cookie Bars sprinkled with red and green are easy and add a pop of color and flavor to your holiday treats! Christmas is the time for fun and festive sweets!  

M&Ms are my favorite addition to any type of treat.  Regardless of the holiday, they have so many fun colors and flavors, it’s easy to add something extra and get an impressive result.  These Christmas treats turn out so soft, and sweet…they are scrumptious!

Even better, these Christmas cookie bars are SO easy.  All you have to do is mix up the dough, and press it in the pan to bake it.  No dropping individual cookies on the baking sheet, no sitting around for 10 minutes for them to bake and then cool and then putting in another batch.  It’s one and done!  I love these because they look impressive, but take minimal effort.  

Ingredients for Christmas M&Ms Cookie Bars

  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Christmas M&Ms
  • Chocolate Chips

 

How to Make Christmas M&M Cookie Bars 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until nice and fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla and continue to mix well at medium speed.
  3. Lower the speed, and add the flour, salt, and baking soda.  The batter will be very thick, like cookie dough.
  4. Add 1 1/2 cups of M&Ms and the chocolate chips.  Mix them in slightly.
  5. Spoon the cookie dough into the prepared pan.  To spread it, I sprayed wax paper with cooking spray, and used that to push it around the pan and spread it out.
  6. Top with additional M&Ms.  Bake at 350 for for 35-40 minutes. Once they have cooled completely, cut and serve.

Will you be adding these to your Christmas baking list?  I hope so!
