Pink M&M Cookie Bars for the Avon Race!

It is finally time for my mom and I to head down to Charlotte for her Avon Breast Cancer walk! We had so much success with the bakesale a month ago! I was telling my co-workers about it, and one of them brought in a bag of pink M&M's for me on Friday. I decided to use them to make some cookie bars to give to my mom and other women at the race. Trish has told me a million times that I need to try these bars, and wow, they are good! JJ especially loved them (and Pumpkin watched them cool for 10 minutes...see photo below).

Pink M&M Cookie Bars

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup oil
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the sugars with the oil.
3. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time, mixing well.
4. Gradually add dry ingredients.
5. Stir in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips.
6. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil (if you use foil, spray with non-stick spray).
7. Spread the dough into the pan, then sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.
8. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes until light golden brown.
