Loaded M&M's® Cookie Bars

I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!  I love seeing all the red, white, and blue around town, celebrating our amazing country and those brave men and women who gave their lives for us.  Today I'm really excited to share an opportunity for those in the American military today who are keeping us safe at home and abroad.  Earlier this month, MARS introduced the "1 For You, 1 For The Troops" campaign where for every bag of M&M's® and Skittles® purchased at Walmart, MARS will be donating one bag to the troops.  Did you know that M&M's® were actually created for the troops?  Let's keep that tradition going!
With the M&M's® I purchased, I made some delicious Loaded M&M's® Cookie Bars that were perfect to share for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Ingredients:
- 1 tube refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
- 16 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- M&M's® Red, White, & Blue Milk Chocolate
- M&M's® Red, White, & Blue Peanut
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Start your bars by lining a 9 by 9 inch pan with the chocolate chip cookie dough.
3. Place the whole sandwich cookies on top of the chocolate chip cookie dough.
4. Cover the top of the sandwich cookies with the sugar cookie dough.
5. Top the bars with M&M's® and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
If you can't tell by the number of layers in these bars, chocolate is a favorite in our house, but if you're looking for something a little sweeter, MARS is also hosting this promotion with any purchase of Skittles® Red, White, & Blue.  I am obsessed with the yumberry flavor in this special variety!
If you'd like to give back to your local military even more, Walmart is hosting special events over the next month where representatives from military bases across the country will be at Walmart stores collecting donations.  If you don't live near a base or would like to donate online, you can click here to visit the NEW Walmart landing page.  All sales of your favorite M&M's® variety will be tracked, and you can even purchase printable gift cards for the troops.
