Join us in all the fun:

Are you a fan of red velvet?  I AM…I mean I am a BIG fan of red velvet.  I literally could have it anytime, anywhere….but Valentines Day really is a perfect time for a little red velvet fun.


Super, Quick and Easy

The beauty of these cookie bars is that literally they can be done in less than 30 minutes, start to finish.  Yes you read that right…30 minutes and done. 

Now I am not normally the one who uses a cake mix, but in this recipe it is AMAZING!  

Extra M&M Fun

I am always the first to jump on the seasonal M&M bandwagon each holiday, but honestly the Valentine M&M’s are my most favorite.  Lets be real red, white & PINK…doesn’t get much better.   When I went to get my Valentine M&M’s a few weeks ago I found Caramel M&M’s which made me SO HAPPY.  They are just so YUMMY!

To take these cookie bars to the next level I decided to mix in some caramel M&M’s with the plain ones.  SO GLAD I DID!

They really are so easy…

My Girl LOVES them too!

My niece and nephew were over at the house when I whipped these bars up and Audra LOVES them.  She ate 3 or 4 throughout the night.  I tell you I love this girl so much!!
