I am looking for a recipe which was on the back of a Christmas bag of M&M's several years ago. It used the green and red M&Ms and also candied cherries. I seem to remember using almond extract too. Anyone have this recipe?
Googled the M&M's website. They have Classic Cookies, Drop Cookies & Specialty Cookies.
Here is another web site with holiday baking ideas...
MERRY CHERRY BARS
1 c. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. coarsely chopped red
1/3 c. coarsely chopped green
1 c. sifted confectioners
5 tsp. warm water
Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy;
blend in egg and almond extract. Add combined flour and salt;
mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup cherries. Spread dough into greased
15 1/2 x 10 x 1/2-inch jelly roll pan. Sprinkle with remaining
1/4 cup cherries and candies; press in lightly. Bake at 300 degrees
for 30 to 35 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.
Cool thoroughly. Combine confectioners sugar and water, mixing
until smooth. Drizzle over cherry candy topping; cut into bars
Note: One 16 ounce package of M&M's plain candies
yields about 1/2 cup green M&M's.
Regarding the recipe I just posted, I notice some variations use 1/2 cup red & green M&Ms instead of 1/3 cup of green ones.
M&M's has a web page called "Bright ideas" I bet you can find the recipe there. Teressa
