Red Velvet Cookie Bars #FantasticalFoodFight

Red Velvet Cookie Dough studded with M&M candies and baked up in a pan.  The result?  Fudge like brownie bars....YUM.

We are having our final round of Fantastical Food Fight this month with Red Velvet recipes.....

I am so happy and proud of our Fantastical Food Fight leader, Sarah who not only blogs over at Fantastical Sharing of Recipes but also hosts this Food Fight each month.  Or at least she has for the last several years.  You see, Sarah announced last month that she was beginning her Masters program this month and that this would be that last Fantastical Food Fight that she is hosting.

I am so happy for Sarah and so sad for us bloggers and our readers who have enjoyed the benefit of all her hard work through the years.  I know that Sarah is going to rock this Masters program just like she rocks every other venture in her life.  

So let's see what everyone is sharing for our very last food fight.......

I was going to make cookies, then at the last minute changed my mind and turned them into cookie bars.  I was glad I did.  If you like fudge brownies you are going to love these bars.

They are quick, easy and delicious.  We enjoyed ours topped with Ice Cream and Hot Fudge the first night and then the next day was able to send a couple to school with the Teen to share with her friends.

So decadent and so good.  

It was a wonderful ending to dinner and a great ending to this amazing group to which I had the honor to belong.  Thanks again Sarah and best wishes for you.  YOU GO GIRL!!

  2. I bet the kids really loved these. I know I had welcome recipients for my extras! Bars are always a favorite.

  3. Ohhh you took those over the top with ice cream and chocolate sauce! They look perfectly moist and fudgy!!

  5. What a prefect treat, red velvet bars with ice cream!

  6. Thank you so much for the well wishes :) I have had so much fun blogging with y'all in these groups over the last few years. Maybe in the future when life has calmed down, we can start back up but I don't want to make any promises.

    These brownies look AMAZING! And the ice cream on top - wow! Perfect :)

  7. Those cookie bars look to die for! And especially with the topping of ice cream and sauce - even more wow!
