Truth be told, M&Ms are one of my favorite candies, and that’s why you see them on so many of my desserts and treats. The bright colors are cheery and fun, making dessert or snack time just a little more special.

Try these healthy cookie bars frozen, too, because they become a sensational chewy treat, yet still pretty darn healthy! Adding a scoop of ice cream, frozen yogurt, or a non-dairy substitute like SoDelicous on top is one of my favorite desserts.
