M&M’s® Crispy Oatmeal Raspberry Bars

The fact that I’m a chocoholic is known to everyone who knows me. I mean I can live on chocolates forever and will probably not need anything else. Yes that is how much I love it, I think chocolate runs in my blood! No kidding! When I started baking I wanted to add chocolate in everything and I still do because there’s nothing quite like it in my opinion. I am always looking out for different varieties of chocolate candies to munch on or to bake with.

During my recent grocery trip, I spotted bright packets of M&M’s® Crispy in the candy aisle.  I came to know that M&M’s® Crispy has been brought back due to popular demand. If that wasn’t enough to tempt me, the bright and colorful green packing certainly did. I grabbed the individual packages first because at only 180 calorie per serving I knew it would be the perfect snack to satisfy my never ending chocolate craving which could strike anytime and anywhere! I also picked up the larger bags so that I could bake with them [wasn’t that obvious!]

 

Oatmeal Raspberry BarsAs soon as I reached home, I popped a handful of M&M’s® Crispy into my mouth because I was so excited to try them! I couldn’t stop eating them because these delicious milk chocolate with a crispy rice center were too good to resist. It was also hard to not eat them all while I was baking with them.

M&M Crispy Collage-nocwmI decided to bake some oatmeal raspberry bars using the bigger packets. These bars are easy to put together and are a wonderful treat for just about anyone. I enjoyed these bars with a glass of milk while hubby ate them as such. According to him the raspberry jam and M&M’s® Crispy were so good together and I couldn’t agree more!

Here’s how you make these M&M’s® Crispy oatmeal raspberry bars in few simple steps.

 

Method

Line a 8×8 square pan with aluminium foil with overhanging edges. Spray the aluminium foil with non-stick spray so that it’s easy to peel off the bars once they have baked. Set aside.

 

In a bowl whisk together quick oats, all purpose flour, baking powder and salt.

Also add the brown sugar and 1/4 cup of M&M’s® Crispy. Mix everything together.

Add in the softened unsalted butter. Use a fork or your fingers to mix in the butter completely till there are no chunks.

Crispy Oatmeal Raspberry Bars Recipe-Step-1Mix the butter till it’s well incorporated with the mixture and the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.

Dump the mixture over the prepared baking pan, reserve 1/2 cup to add later on. Press it with your hands or using the back of your spoon till mixture is tightly packed.

Top the oatmeal layer with seedless raspberry jam. I microwaved the jam a little to make it easier to spread.

Press the remaining 1/2 cup of M&M’s® Crispy on the top most layer.

Bake at 350 F degrees for around 30 minutes or till light golden brown from top. Let the bars cool completely [I know very hard!!] before cutting into pieces. Crispy Oatmeal Raspberry Bars Recipe-Step-3Enjoy these crispy oatmeal raspberry bars with a glass of milk!

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever tried the Crispy M&M’s…but clearly I need to since they are making a comeback. Also, clearly I need to because these bars look amazing! The raspberry addition takes this dessert to a whole new level. Pass those bars over before anyone gets hurt! 🙂
