Double Chocolate M&M Cookie Bars

I made these for Bob to take on the camping trip with the Young Men too.  None came home so I’m assuming they were a hit.  All I had on hand were red, white and blue M&M’s so they got patriotic treats but of course any M&M’s will do.

1 3/4 cups flour

1/4 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup M&M’s

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Whisk together flour, cocoa, soda, salt and cornstarch in bowl.

3  Whisk together butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl for about 2 minutes or until sugar starts dissolving.  Add egg and vanilla and mix well.

4  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until dough forms.  Stir in chocolate chips.

5  Press dough into pan and sprinkle M&M’s over the top, pressing them slightly into dough.

6  Bake 18 – 20 minutes or until dough appears dry on top.

7  Cool completely before cutting.
