Everything But the Kitchen Sink
I'm not the craftiest cook out there, but I LOVE this easy recipe and it can be changed to celebrate most any occasion just by changing M & M colors! I just whipped up this batch for Louisiana TECH tailgating tommorrow, but you can pick your team colors, or fall colors, or Christmas colors...you get the drift, and it's a CAN'T miss. This recipe is found in Mardi Gras to Mistletoe-Junior League of Shreveport. Happy Birthday Pop and GO DAWGS!
"Everything But the Kitchen Sink" Bar Cookies
1 roll refrigerator chocolate chip cookie cough
1 7oz jar marshmallow creme
1/2 c creamy peanut butter (I think I use more than this-too lazy to measure!)
1 1/2 c corn Chex (again, I may use more/less, just eyeball)
1/2 c M & M's (pick your colors, no need to measure here either)
Pat the cookie dough over the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes. Drop teaspoonfuls of the marshmallow creme and peanut butter over the top of the baked layer and bake for 1 minute.
Carefully spread the melted marshmallow creme and peanut butter over the top. Sprinkle with the cereal and chocolate candies and bake for 7 minutes longer. Cool in the pan on a wire rack and cut into 2-inch bars.
