Festive candy cookie bars

(KLTV/KTRE) - These cookie bars couldn't be more fun and easy to make! Get your children to help out; they'll love pouring in all the candies while you stir!

Festive candy cookie bars


1 yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1 stick of butter, melted
one bag of holiday color M&Ms minis 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x13" baking dish with foil, leaving overhang on each short end to aid in easy removal of the bars for cutting when cool.
Spray the foil with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, melted butter, and eggs, stirring until smooth. Then, dump in the candies, and stir in to distribute throughout the dough.

Next spread the dough into the pan, and use an offset spatula to smooth it as you go.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.  Allow bars to cool completely before attempting to cut into squares.
