If you’ve ever been inside my house, you know that M&M’s® are always around. We are never without a bowl full of these addicting little chocolate treats. Dark chocolate, Peanut, Peanut Butter, and of course all the seasonal flavors — we’ve got ’em all. Whenever I need a little chocolate fix, I can always count on my bowl of M&M’s® to get me through it! When I was invited to try new M&M’s® Crispy, I was super excited to give it a go. Actually, M&M’s® Crispy isn’t entirely new. It’s an older variety of M&M’s® that took a little bit of a hiatus and is now back in action! I don’t know why it ever left — M&M’s® Crispy are only 180 calories per individual snack size pack! A lower calorie M&M’s® snack?! Count me in!
I was overwhelmed with M&M’s® deliciousness as soon as I walked down the candy aisle at Walmart — I almost wanted to grab one of every single bag there. But those individual snack bags of lower calorie M&M’s® Crispy were calling out to me and begging to be saved from the shelves as I walked through the checkout line. Nothing like a little last minute candy-fix as you end your grocery shopping! How could I ignore their cries?!
I love all of the varieties of M&M’s® — especially all the fun colors and flavors for different holidays and seasons. A little taste of chocolate here and there throughout the day keeps me happy! But you know what’s even better than just a couple M&M’s® on their own? M&M’s® Crispy Cookie Cake Bars! M&M’s® always make desserts super fun and colorful and this M&M’s® Crispy Cookie Cake is certainly no exception.
This is my tried-and-true cookie cake recipe passed down from Bubby. I’m pretty excited to add M&M’s® Crispy to an already perfect recipe and I have a feeling you’re going to be excited about these M&M’s® Crispy Cookie Cake Bars too! There are tons are great ways to use these delicious chocolate candies. See more great M&M’s® Crispy recipe and party ideas on the M&M’s® Crispy social hub.
