Since she was a toddler, Gemma has shown a love for all things baking. Though we’d let her help out here and there, it wasn’t until recently that she’s really wanted to get involved in whatever I’m making. So when I whipped out the ingredients for this recipe, you know she was all in. If you’re lucky enough to not lose half of the ingredients in the process, involving your little ones in the making of these sweet treats makes it even sweeter.
The sprinkles in this recipe are really what make this dessert truly special. Not only do they add the most beautiful pop of color, but the slight crunch it adds to the cookie cause for it to standout from the rest. If you’ve been following Weelicious for a while, then you know I’m all about dye-free anything. I used my favorite dye-free sprinkle brand to really bring this recipe to the next level, which I linked above as well!

Loved by all at Christmas dinner! My home economist mom asked for the recipe, and she’s baked a lot of bars!
These were yummy! Not too overly sweet! After 30 minutes in the oven though they were still seriously gooey! So I turned the oven off and let them sit in with foil covered for another 15 minutes and they were done. A delicious treat for our snow day!
How fun! My kids will love these! What type of chocolate covered candy did you use?
