Caramel M&M Cookie Bars are a delicious brown sugar-buttery cookie base mixed with chocolate and caramel. These bars have the wonderful taste of caramel bars made easier, thanks to the addition of M&M’S® Caramel candies. 

M&M’S® Caramel is not your traditional caramel. It has a creamy caramel center covered in milk chocolate and enclosed in a candy shell, combining everything delicious about M&M’S® and caramels into one. Yum!
