M&M Holiday Cookie Bars

Good evening friends and foodies! Welcome to day nine of our 25 Days of Christmas Recipes. If you are just joining us, you are in for a treat. Before we begin though, I wanted to share a video that is relevant to the recipe we are making today because we will be dealing with M&Ms. I love this video.  If you've never seen this video, you will grin after you see it. It always makes me giggle.

Now that we've had a tiny holiday giggle, I'll meet y'all in the kitchen! See you there!
