Ingredients
  • 18 ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 12 ounce package white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • green food dye
  • 1/2 cup pastel colored M&Ms
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place cookie dough and the pecans in a large resealable plastic bag and knead to combine. Press dough evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan.

  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. In the meantime, place coconut in a small bowl or bag along with 1-2 dots of green food dye. Gently knead to combine and coat all the coconut. Set aside.
  5. Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave safe bowl and microwave for 45-60 seconds. Stir and then microwave for additional 15 second intervals, if necessary, until melted and smooth.
  6. Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the baked cookie dough and spread evenly. Sprinkle with the dyed coconut flakes, followed by the M&Ms.
  7. Chill in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to set chocolate.

  8. Remove from pan onto a cutting board and cut into bars.
