M&M’s Cookie Sticks are a fun twist on classic cookies and cookie bars.
One of things I have always looked forward to doing as a family was having game nights. Playing board games lets everyone unplug from technology and focus back on spending quality time together as a family. Of course while playing, you have to be eating something yummy. One of the treats I like to make are my M&M’s Cookie Sticks.
Before our game night, I had to go to Walmart to pick up the ingredients. I decided to stock up on M&M’s®. I purchased a 42 oz. party size bag of the milk chocolate M&M’s® since I had a coupon for $1 off the purchase of a 38 oz. bag or larger. Now I won’t have to worry about running out of M&M’s® anytime soon.
I also decided to check out the board game section while I was there. I ended up purchasing Hasbro® Jenga and Classic Monopoly. I haven’t played Jenga in a long time and I thought it would be perfect to go along with my M&M’s® Cookie Sticks.
M&M’s Cookie Sticks are made with normal cookie batter but baked in pan. Once they are done baking and cooled, they are sliced with a knife into rectangle shapes. They are easy to grab and eat while playing your favorite Hasbro® games. M&M’s Cookie Sticks are especially fun to eat and play with while playing Jenga.

Oh, my! I was just getting ready to make a huge batch of cookies for a food swap for tomorrow (yes, I am running last minute!). I had a recipe picked out already. Last night, I recalled that we had a big package of M&Ms in the pantry and the thought of M&M cookies crossed my mind, but I didn’t do anything with them. Think I am going to make your recipe now! I will likely write a recipe review/food swap post using my own content. Do you mind if I link back to you? Thanks for sharing!
I hope you enjoyed the recipe. Unfortunately, my content is copyrighted. You are more than welcome to share my post on your social media, but my recipe is only allowed on my own site.

WOW….these look amazing, and you are right, the perfect food for game night. With M&Ms coming in so many variates, the possibilities are endless.
These sound so good!
Can they be frozen
Technically, it’s just cookie dough so it could be frozen. But I’m not sure how it would turn out baking them since they would be in a cold pan.
