M&M Cookie Bars

The other day I had the urge to bake so I decided to whip up these m&m cookie bars. I am so glad I did, well maybe my mind is but my body isn't because I could not stop eating them. They even stayed soft and chewy for a few days unlike when I make regular cookies. 

12 TBSPs butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted and cooled slightly
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsps vanilla extract
2 1/8 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 12oz bag mini M&M's, divided

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch pan with foil, make sure the foil goes up the sides of the pan too.   Mix the butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Stir in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Fold the flour, salt, and baking soda in until just combined. Stir in 1 cup of m&m's.

Pour batter into pan and smooth it out.  Place remaining m&m's on top and smoosh into batter a little. 

Bake at 325 degrees for 25-28 minutes.
