Tips for making M&M Cake Mix Cookie Bars
To get the brightest colors, press the M&Ms into the top of the batter. If you're putting these out at a party, it's nice for the colors to show.
Another option is to fold them gently into the batter before filling the pan. It's not quite as pretty that way, but then the M&Ms are distributed throughout the top and bottom. Most kids gobble them up before noticing where exactly the M&Ms are placed!
