FAQ’s:

The most common question– Do I have to use regular M&MS in this recipe?

The answer is no, you can use any type of M&Ms, you want, some of my favorites are:

  1. Peanut M&M’s.
  2. Almond M&M’s.
  3. Coconut M&M’s.
  4. Holiday M&M’s.
  5. Mini M&M’s
  6. Pretzels M&M’s

Any other type of M&M you see in the store.

How to Store

Assuming that you have any left. The best thing to do is let them cool down to room temperature and then place in an airtight container. Then place the container into the refrigerator.

If you want to freeze any leftovers, let them cool to room temperature, then place them on a baking sheet. Freeze each individual M&M bar, and then place the frozen M&M  bar into an airtight container or Ziploc bag These should last about 2 months.

To use from the freezer, simply leave on the counter to defrost.
