Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Bars

So, it’s been a really long time since I last posted on here.  I’m a bad little blogger and I’m very sorry but I’m hoping that the absolute deliciousness of these cookie bars will make up for my failures.  It’s been a manic few months, I’ve graduated university, started my career, had my 21st birthday and bought a house.  Not necessarily in that order.  So please forgive me and grab some snacks because this is going to be a tummy rumbling post.

You will need –

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
18 Oreo Cookies, coarsely chopped
about 1/2 cup M&M’s

Start by preheating the oven to 180 degrees F and then line an 8 by 8 inch baking pan with aluminium foil, then spray this with cooking spray

Wait for the butter to cool before you add the egg because nobody likes scrambled brownies.  Then add the brown sugar and vanilla and whisk it all up

Add the flour and stir until just combined and then stir in the Oreos

Pop the batter in the prepared pan and try to smooth the top down as best you can

Sprinkle the M&Ms over the top and press them down lightly so they get a little bit stuck in

Bake for about 20 to 22 minutes but keep an eye on them.  The top should be set and edges slightly firm.  If you put a skewer in the centre, it should come out clean.  Make sure you allow the brownie bars to cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

And there you have it, some gorgeously gooey mouthfuls of happiness!
