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!
Chocolate M&Ms Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup (2 sticks of Butter)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- .75 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2.25 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup Cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1.5 cups M&Ms Minis Baking Chips
- 1.5 cups Semi-Sweet Toll House Chocolate Chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
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
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. Bake for 9 minutes.
This recipe should yield you between 24-30 cookies depending on the size of your cookies.
