A brownie/oatmeal base, smothered in chocolate cookie butter and topped with a cookie butter creme, decorated prettily with M&M's® Crispy! These Cookie Butter Crispy Creme Bars are a mouthful of comfort with the chewy base and creamy fudge like cookie butter cream combination and the M&M's® Crispy give them that crunch factor!
|I found my M&M's® Crispy in a big display in the candy aisle at my local Walmart|
