WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE COOKIES

To make this M&M Cookies recipe, you just need basic ingredients including: eggs, flour, sugar, salt, butter, vanilla, baking soda, and then of course m&ms. 

And yes, these aren’t just amazing Christmas cookies. Use any color of m&ms for year-round deliciousness! 

DIRECTIONS 

Making these cookies is so fast and easy! In a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and eggs together. 

Then stir in the dry ingredients. 

Gently combine the m & m candies into the dough and chocolate chips or other mix-ins as desired. 

Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-9 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. 

Eat, store in an air-tight container or freeze for later. 

CAN I FREEZE THE COOKIE DOUGH?

Absolutely, you can freeze this cookie dough. If you don’t have time to bake the cookies right away or you want to be able to have a quick Christmas dessert, just freeze the dough balls just before baking. 

When ready to bake, place the m&m cookie dough on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper or a silicone mat and bake. You may need to bake for 1-2 extra minutes.

WANT CHOCOLATE CHIP M&M COOKIES? 

No problem! The great thing about this basic chocolate chip cookie recipe is that you can really add in anything you want! For Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies, throw in a big handful or two of chocolate chips.  

You can also add butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips or nuts. 

The possibilities really are endless. 

M&M COOKIE BARS 

For M&M Cookie Bars, I recommend using our Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar 30-minutes recipe (loved by hundreds of thousands!) and adding m&ms to the cookie dough. Or you can omit the chocolate chips and just add m&ms. Your choice!
