Chewy M&M Cookie Bars

Chewy M&M Cookie Bars
Who can resist M&M's?  Not me and not my neighbor.  I took these out for him to "test" for me and according to him they would be perfect with a glass of milk.  I like that these are not extremely rich they are just right.  I hope that you enjoy these!
  • 2 1/8 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 12 TBSPs butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 12oz bag mini M&M's, divided
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch pan with foil, with the foil overhanging on the sides.
  2. Mix together the butter and sugars until combined. Stir in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  3. Fold the flour salt, and baking soda into the wet mixture until just combined.
  4. Stir in 1 cup of M&M's and turn the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula.
  5. Sprinkle remaining M&M's on top and press in slightly.
  6. Bake until the top of the bars is light golden brown, slightly firm to the touch, and edges start pulling away from sides of pan, 25-28 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars.
