What are you favorite Easter treats?

Is it an chocolate Easter bunny? Marshmallow Peeps? There are so many to choose from!

I’ve been seeing Easter cookies, or as some people call them “Cookie Bars”, popping up on Pinterest lately.

This past weekend I decided to make a batch of my own for my daughter and her friends! How could it not be good with all those cute pastel M&Ms?

What a fun way to celebrate Easter! Baking for special occasions is always so much fun.

Where do you serve these awesome Easter Cookie Bars?

I put mine on a plate on the living room table and my daughter’s friends helped themselves.

They all seemed to be enjoying them! Of course they ended up getting some chocolate smudges around their mouths, but who cares? It was an Easter celebration after all!

Have you ever tried Easter themed M&Ms?

I think they are the prettiest variety of M&Ms yet! You can use them in so many more things, and not only just as a fun snack!

How I Got Started Making Easter Cookie Bars:

I am visually-stimulated, so she loves bright colors! When I saw the M&Ms come out with pastel colors, I knew it would be a fun idea to turn them into Easter Cookie Bars. That way everyone can enjoy a fun treat but with an Easter theme!

I have shared a ton of cookie bar recipes on this site because they are so easy to make and oh so tasty! I just knew this one would be no exception. So if you are looking for a sweet treat to make but don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, I’ve got you covered!

1/2 cup butter, melted

¼ cup water

Enjoy and let me know how much you love it!
