M&M Cookie Cups

I was snowed in for most of last week. Now, when I say “snowed in,” I don’t mean that I literally couldn’t get the doors open. I could. But my car was absolutely covered with snow and ice. And so i start cleaning snow off car only to discover that my car battery is so dead that it wont take a jump.

So it was a time for Plan B, but the extreme wind chills made it unbearable to walk more than a block, not to mention that roads were a slick, icy mess.Due to all of these factors, I thought it was best that I just stay home, but soon i was realized that I was snowed in without any sweets at all.  Just…Ugh
Luckily, I had a bag of m&m’s and this little m&m cookie cups recipe up my sleeve.
It was truth. A plain, bold, delicious, candy truth.
