Cookie Bar Ingredients
All of the detailed ingredient amounts are below in the recipe, but you’ll need all the cookie making basics:
- Sugar (brown sugar and white sugar)
- Baking Soda and Baking Powder
- Chocolate Chips
- Green M&Ms (sort them out yourself or grab a bag with only green M&Ms)
St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Bar Directions
You’ll begin by preheating your oven and lining your cookie sheet with parchment paper (or you can grease it really good with butter if you’d prefer. I personally like the ease of cleanup that comes with parchment paper.).
Next, you’ll begin mixing your ingredients together, starting with the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together your dry ingredients and then slowly add it to the butter mixture. Once combined, fold in the chocolate chips and green M&Ms. Super easy, right?
The final step is to spread your cookie mixture across your cookie sheet, pressing the dough into place. You can even add some extra green M&Ms across the top to add some additional color.
You’ll bake it until it’s lightly brown on top and then let it cool before cutting it into small bars. All that’s left is to serve it up on St. Patrick’s Day and enjoy!
