I'm not one to bake cookies overly often. This year due to my nostalgia from baking cookies with the neighborhood growing up, I decided to find my own trademark cookie recipe this year. I have always had a desire to learn how to make the perfect M&Ms cookie recipe. My kids have turned into little cookie zombie monsters begging me to get the supplies to make these cookies tonight again for them. Then they got my in-laws in on the begging too. I've been a part of this family off and on since I've been 13 years old. There are only two things they have ever begged me to cook. These cookies and my meatloaf are those two items! So, I felt safe to share this recipe with you!
Do These Things First
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Let butter get to room temperature.
1 cup (2 sticks of butter)
1 cup of Granulated Sugar
3/4 packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups of M&Ms Minis Baking Chips
1 1/2 cups of Semi-Sweet Toll House Chocolate Chips
Directions to Make Them
In a big mixing bowl mix together your room temperature butter sticks, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until creamy, this is your master mixture. In another bowl mix together your flour, Cocoa Powder, baking soda, and salt until it is FULLY mixed together.
You're going to slowly add the flour mixture to the master mixture a little bit at a time and mix it together until creamy. It should take you about three or four times of adding the flour mixture to the master mixture.
Once you have all of the flour mixture added to the master mixture you're going to add your M&Ms and mix the mixture until they are well mixed in. Then you'll add in your chocolate chips.
Then you'll take a regular spoon full of cookie dough and put it on your cookie sheet about a 1/2 inch apart. You should be able to fit about 12 cookies per cookie sheet.
This recipe should yield you between 24-30 cookies depending on the size of your cookies.
Warning: Your family may eat them all before you can finish making the whole batch. At least that's what happened at my house. I literally got 3 cookies out of the first batch I made. There was an all-out war over who was getting the last one!
This is one set of cookies they couldn't wait until 2019 to get again. (Typically, I make cookies only once a year! The same thing is true for German chocolate cake and I'm VERY particular about that kind of cake! I almost couldn't find my cake mix on my last birthday.)
