Oreo Monster Bars #chocolateparty

Can you believe we are already well into October? I haven't even made my first pumpkin recipe yet. Before you know it Thanksgiving will be here.  My head is spinning. I am doing my best to slow down and just enjoy today.  Too bad my days go by so fast.

With all of the house hustle and bustle I was a little late with my chocolate party treat. In fact, I made these Oreo Monster Bars yesterday.  I was happy to make them though. They were needed after a long weekend of house work. And although we had other desserts in the house, there was nothing homemade.  

These bars are loaded with chocolate chips, Oreos, and M&Ms.  A great way to clean out some of the random hodge podge of snacks in my pantry. Plus perfect for the October Chocolate Party theme of candy.  I thought about a few more candies but I didn't want to go overboard. Feel free to substitute any candies you may have laying around.

There is a sweet and sweet thing going on in these bars.  Plus, you get the creaminess from the Oreo filling. Needless to say in 24 hours the pan is half gone.

If you want to join in on the fun here is how you participate:

1.) Blog about your chocolate treat. Your recipe must include the two ingredients we choose. It can be a simple no bake treat or a sophisticated layer cake, the complexity level of the recipe is totally up to you.

2.) Include a link back to the Chocolate party page.  Optionally, add the Chocolate Party logo in your blog post or on your sidebar.
