I love baking.  One of my favorite  recipes  is  M&M cookies. My mother always makes sure all the cookies have enough chocolate.  I enjoy sharing  with my family and friends. I also make other types of cookies, but I want to share this one with you.


Unsalted butter: I prefer to use unsalted to control the amount of salt.

Light brown sugar: I love mixing brown sugar into my cookies for the perfect flavor.

Granulated sugar: What makes these cookies so sweet.

Eggs: I prefer using large eggs. Make sure they’re fresh.

Vanilla: I like to use a pure vanilla extract to bring out the flavor.

All-purpose flour: I use non bleached, but use whatever you have on hand.

Baking soda: This is what will help the cookies to rise.

Salt: Fine sea salt is my preference, but table salt will do.

Chocolate chips: Semi-sweet are my personal favorite for this recipe.

M&M’s: I prefer to use the regular m&m candies, unless there is a holiday coming up.


Preheat oven to 375°F and line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.

Using a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars for 1 minute in a large bowl using the paddle attachment. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix.

Next add flour, baking soda and salt and whisk until combined. Fold in both chocolate chips and M&M’s to the flour mixture. Refrigerate dough for 15-30 minutes. By chilling the dough it helps them to not fall flat.

Scoop cookie dough with large cookie scoop onto baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Place extra M&M’s on top.

Bake M&M cookies for 8-10 minutes, until tops are barely golden. Let set on pan for 2 minutes, then move to cooling wire racks.
