Probably my favourite treat growing up was my mum’s 7 layer bars. I haven’t shared that recipe yet – I’m saving it for a very special occasion, but I was inspired by Love from the Oven‘s variation on this classic treat (she’s really demonstrated how highly adaptable it is) and when I was able to procure some pumpkin spice M&Ms, my first instinct was to use them to in a cookie bar – and I have to say, it was one of my more clever brainstorms! These really got me in a Halloween mood and would be great for a school party or to share with your colleagues for Halloween or Thanksgiving.
