So my grandson comes for a sleepover last night. Today prior to being picked up by his dad, I/we started making this recipe. My son arrives just as I’m shoving the bars in the oven. The bars take about 40 minutes baking time. Needless to say, they stayed until the bars were out of the oven and enjoyed an over sized bar.
Warning: Highly Addictive !! And, if you don’t like chocolate, ….you’ve come to the wrong place!
During the holidays, M&M’s come in holiday colors. We have just had Memorial Day here and the M&M’s were out in patriotic colors. During Christmas they will have the green and red packages available. So Clever !!! Hmmm…. I wonder if they make other country patriotic bags of M&M’s ?
