M&M Dream Bars

I absolutely love candy bars. All candy bars. It's the experience. It's the shiny wrappers and picking one from from a rack of 10s of them... trying to decide if I'm in the mood for a snickers bar, m&ms (and if so... peanut, regular or peanut butter), reese peanut butter cups, whatchamacallit, and the list goes on and on...

I've been searching for a recipe for m&m cookies. I always got the feeling that the actual cookie part was different than just making chocolate chip cookies and using m&ms instead. Although, now, after some research, I think thats exactly how you make them. But, in my search for a specific m&m cookie recipe, I found this recipe for m&m dream bars.

They are delicious! Addictive, in fact. They are pretty crumbly on top, which makes them very messy to eat, but worth the mess. Trust me.
The only thing I hate are blue m&ms. There is something so non-appetizing about bright blue m&ms.

Also: April, if you are reading this.... I'm going to save you some grief here cause I know you won't read the recipe all the way through... You have to reserve 1 1/2 cups of the crust to use on the top at the end!
