Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Holiday Bars

Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Holiday Bars

These bars are famous. Well maybe not these exact bars but the original recipe is.

The original recipe has been Pinned over 1 million times and appeared on the cover of Taste of Home Magazine just over one year ago.

I made the original recipe on a whim because I was moving and had a half package of both Oreos and M&Ms open, didn’t want to move them, didn’t want to toss them, made the bars, and the rest is history.

The recipe is a spinoff on my trusty blondie base. When I want an easy, fuss-free, one-bowl, no-mixer recipe that I know everyone will love, it’s my go-to. With 30+ versions and counting, it never lets me down.

It’s an easy recipe to memorize because everything is ‘one’. In the 1 bowl used, melt 1 stick of butter, stir in 1 egg, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla, 1 cup flour. For this version there’s Oreos and M&M’s added.

I was on the hunt for red or green-filled seasonal Oreos but was just a bit too early when I made the bars a few weeks back. I think mint M&Ms or mint Oreos would be a great touch.

The bars are loaded with goodies in every bite.

Crunchy Oreos and crisp M&M’s are a great texture contrast to the soft, buttery bars.
