It’s always a pleasure partnering with M&M’s to help create some delicious recipes for their new Pinterest page.  It’s no secret that I love adding M&M’s to my recipes for hints of chocolate in every bite.

M&M’s recently launched their new Pinterest Page, be sure to check it out HERE to get some yummy baking inspiration!

These ice cream cookie sandwiches are so much fun to prepare and the whole family loves them.  You can even prepare these ahead of time, wrap and freeze until ready to serve.

Hope you enjoy!
