V-Day Dessert Recipe // m&m Cookie Brownie Bars


* Recipe by guest contributor Laney Schwartz, creator of Life is But a Dish

What kind of person are you? Cookie or brownie?

I’m 100% a cookie monster, but somehow when they’re together I just can’t resist.

Because sometimes it’s just too hard to decide.

Cookie? Brownie? Well, this m&m Cookie Brownie Bar recipe is both!

I know, you’re welcome.


And we’re just in time for Valentine’s Day! So naturally, I had to use V-day colored M&M’s.


And I only half cheated.

I used my favorite boxed brownie mix, but made the cookie dough from scratch.


You can do it too! YUM!

    This is like a dream come true for me, becuase it is always hard choosing between brownies and cookies! The M&Ms are an adorable touch as well!
