Betty demonstrates how to make M and M's Bars. These are delicious bar cookies made of oatmeal, pecans, flour, butter, sweetened condensed milk, brown sugarand, of course, M and Ms!

Ingredients

All purpose flour
Light brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Quick oats 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Pecans 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Butter 18 Tablespoon
Candy 14 Ounce ((MandampM))
Sweetened condensed milk 14 Ounce

Directions

MAKING:

1. In a very large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, oats, pecans, soda, and salt.

2. Add 1 cup butter and mix well. (The mixture will be crumbly. Mixing with your hands works best.)

3. Reserve 1 cups crumbs for topping. Press remaining crumbs into an ungreased 15-inch by 10-inch baking pan or baking dish.

4. Bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees (F).

5. While crust is baking, mix 2 tablespoons butter with 1 cups M and Ms. Place over low heat.

6. Melt butter and break up M and Ms with the back of a spoon. Chocolate will melt and pieces of color will remain.

7. Remove from heat and stir in sweetened condensed milk.

8. Spread this mixture over partially baked crust.

9. Combine reserved crumbs and remaining M and Ms.

10. Sprinkle this mixture over chocolate layer and press in lightly.

11. Bake for 20 minutes more, or just until golden. Cool thoroughly and cut into bars (rectangles or squaresor even triangles!).

SERVING:

12. Serve and enjoy!
