I typically am not a brittle/bark kinda girl. I like my sweets soft and chewy. But, I decided to mix it up a bit and try something new!
I found this recipe via Pinterest, but it’s originally from Lemon Tree Dwelling.
This recipe, I actually followed exactly as the original recipe below:
M&M Cookie Brittle
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. mini M&M’s
1. Combine butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer, until smooth.
2. Add flour and baking soda; mix until thoroughly combined.
3. Stir in M&M’s.
4. Spray a large jelly roll pan with cooking spray and spread dough as thinly as possible (should cover all or most of a 16×12 inch pan). Bake at 375 degrees for 12 min.
5. Cool on pan; break or cut into irregular pieces.
