Chocolate Shortbread Bars with White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s

Tags: , ,


Have I said how much I love going down the Halloween isle and finding new goodies to bake with?!  Let me introduce you to….

…..the White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s.  Now, before everyone panics, if you can’t find these ANY M&M variety will work just fine.  From what I know these are a Walmart exclusive product.  If anyone has found them other places PLEASE let us know.  My mom brought me 2 bags from a Super Walmart in Mesa, AZ.

I wish you could have seen Amanda and I searching all over Nashville for these darn candies last weekend.  We did not have luck, but boy we had fun trying, lol!  She did have luck in Alabama finding some and I know Arizona has them :) Make sure you check out Amanda’s yummy dessert with the same M&M’s today too!

Good luck everyone!!

Here is your all-star line up.  Very basic pantry basics and a bag of your favorite M&M’s.  Simple, buttery and sweet :)


Cream your butter until creamy.


Add your sugar :)

Add your brown sugar.


Melt your chocolate in the microwave until creamy and smooth.


Add your melted chocolate to the butter and sugars.


Mix, mix, mix!


Add your flour and salt to the mix.  Dough will be thick.


Chocolate-y fabulous.  Press into your baking pan.


Time for the M&M’s!


Line your M&M’s however you like.  I chose rows.  Mmmm.


Time to bake.  350 degrees F. for 30-35 minutes.


Oh baby, I am salivating again.  Buttery, crisp but soft and delicious.  Enjoy friends :)
