      I'm editing my original review because the first time I made these I used all splenda, and THAT was the reason the cookies were dry and crumbly. However, the second time I made them I DID add another 1/4 cup butter to the recipe, and they came out perfectly, so I would suggest 3/4 cup total butter instead of the 1/2 cup stated. Also, I used a combination of white and brown sugar instead of all white - personal preference, love the taste the brown sugar brings to the table.

      It is EXTREMELY hard to get all of the ingredients into a quart jar. My suggestion is to pack the M & M's in a cute little bag and then attach them. I agree with the other reviewer, this recipe tastes very good but needs an extra 1/4 c of butter or an extra egg (this is what I did...turned out great!) or else it is a bit too dry.
