Easter Cookie Bars

I’m starting to plan for my Easter dinner this weekend.  We are having a large crowd, so I am hoping to start getting things set up later this week.  I wanted to try out a fun easter dessert to share with our overnight guests.  A treat they could grab for a snack while visiting our home.
I found this recipe on Chelsea’s Messy Apron blog.  Easter cookie bars are basically a white chocolate cookie topped with marshmallows, white chocolate chips and m&m’s.

My little guy helped me make these.  They were fun to put together.  He loved adding the marshmallows and the m&m’s.

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the room temperature butter with the white and brown sugar in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Mix the butter and sugars together with hand beaters or in a stand mixer until creamy and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla and beat until just incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Stir together and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  5. Mix until combined.
  6. With a wooden spoon, stir in one cup of the white chocolate chips. Press the cookie dough into a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
  7. Bake the cookie dough for 10-13 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  8. Remove and immediately top with the miniature marshmallows and M&M’s. Return to the oven for 1-2 minutes or until the marshmallows become puffy.
  9. Remove and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup white chocolate chips and sprinkles over the bars.
  10. Let cool completely and then cut with a wet knife.

These were ooey and gooey and just so delicious.  They will put you on a sugar high, so a glass of milk is a must!  Yum.

To life feeling like home!

XO,
