Finicky Friday - Cookie Dough Candy Bars

Hey everyone, I thought it would be cool to post some recipes I had found online. I’m going to *try* to do some of these beforehand, but I’m sure there’ll be times I won't. I'm going to call this Finicky Friday. :)

Cookie Dough Candy Bars

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix

Expert Tips

Fall, Spring, Christmas or Fourth of July -- take advantage of the array of seasonally colored M&M’s™ chocolate candies. This gooey bar will be a show stealer every day, whatever the occasion.

The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
