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.
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
1 and 1/4 cup white chocolate chips, separated
3 cups miniature marshmallows
3/4 cup Spring M&M's
3 tablespoons sprinkles
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the room temperature butter with the white and brown sugar in a medium sized bowl.
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.
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.
Mix until combined.
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.
Bake the cookie dough for 10-13 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
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.
Remove and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup white chocolate chips and sprinkles over the bars.
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.
