What makes you happy these days?

It’s Spring today, which makes me happy, even though it comes hand in hand with allergy season.

A good manicure makes me pretty happy especially if glitter polish is involved.

A clean house (if even for a moment) makes me exponentially happy.

The Bachelor has finally ended which makes me all sorts of happy, but a little sad at the same time.  But The Bachelorette will be starting soon, so….happy again!

Easter’s almost here which makes me happy because that means I can unabashedly decorate the house in pastel colors and not feel like I live inside an episode of The Golden Girls.

And of course cookies make me happy.

Of course.

And these Cookie Sticks make me even happier because I didn’t even have to use my mixer.  Just a bowl and a spoon.  Happy sigh.

How to Make These Easy Cookie Bars

Mix your wet ingredients together first.  Yes, sugar is a wet ingredient, don’t ask.

Add your dry stuff and split it half…

Spread it out in two long rectangles on your lined baking sheet.

I found these yummies at the store last week…White Chocolate M&Ms.

I decided to give them a try here..

Press the M&Ms (or chocolate chips) on top before you bake.

Here’s the before and after…

Let them cool a bit and using a pizza cutter or knife cut into strips.

And that’s it…

Let them cool completely before eating, if you can wait!
