Today, my daughter wanted to bake something for a friend based on the 4th of July theme.  She decided on these M&M Oreo Cookie Bars and am I glad she did.

The great tasting butter rich cookie dough is super good, and then when you add the M&M Candies and the Oreo Thins, it will take a lot of willpower to stop at just one of these.  Plus this recipe is so easy to put together.  She had them in the oven in no time.

Yes, I think she made a good choice.  Loving these M&M Oreo Cookie Bars!  Glad she only left a couple here, or we may have had restraining issues.
