Snickerdoodle Pumpkin M&M Bars

Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars stuffed with Pumpkin Spice M&M's and topped with pumpkin spiced cinnamon and sugar. Pure fall comfort, in one delicious bar.

If you've been reading my posts for the last week or so, you know that Lemon Tree Dwelling has been heavy on the Halloween crafts and light on the good stuff (aka food!!) What can I say....other than that, every now and then, even I need a break from food! And my crafty side needs a little attention, too. So I hope you've had fun with the crafts (I know I have)....and now, back to the good stuff!

I wanted to leave you with something for the weekend that would satisfy all your fall terms of flavor, texture, and most of all, comfort! I don't know about you, but around here, it is definitely starting to feel like fall! Just overnight our driveway has become cluttered with leaves and there is a certain feeling in the air. Time to cozy on up and do some baking!

These Snickerdoodle Pumpkin M&M Bars are everything you would want from a cookie bar - they are soft, chewy, chocolatey, and absolutely delicious! They combine the classic flavors of snickerdoodles with the seasonal flavors of pumpkin spice. And best of all, they're bars. Which means you mix 'em, you spread 'em, you bake 'em, and you cut 'em. Easy peasy. Which means more time to enjoy 'em.....and more time to enjoy this gorgeous fall weather! Have a great weekend!
