M&M Cookies

My soft and chewy M&M cookies are easy to make and taste great. I use a combination of M&M as well as semi-sweet chocolate chips to create a delicious soft-baked cookie.

Add these to the list of the best cookies ever, along with my homemade brownie cookies! You may also want to try my buckeyes, our peanut butter fudge, and this amazing skillet chocolate chip cookie!

Soft and Chewy Cookies

These from scratch M&M cookies are so delicious. I have to admit, I always have a spoonful of M&M cookie dough, even though I know better.

Do you ever wonder why none of us had a problem eating cookie dough when we were kids, before we knew that raw eggs and flour were not healthy to consume?

Yeah, me too!

Best M&M Cookies Recipe

One of the changes that I made to this recipe a few years ago was adding a combination of M&M’s and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

I just find that this adds a nice flavor and texture to the cookies, as opposed to only using the M&M’s in the recipe.

Next, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and the salt. Mix into the butter mixture a little at a time, until combined.

  1. I really wish you had a recipe plugin that had a print recipe option.  I would love to try several of your recipes, but when I can’t print the recipe to have in my kitchen while I’m cooking, I don’t bother. I don’t cook off my phone. Please consider adding that option to your site…I’m sure I’m not the only one that passes your site by because of this frustration.

    • Hi Shawna! While I understand frustration over not being able to print, I assure you the option to print is there on each and every one of my recipes. If you scroll down toward the bottom of the page there is a recipe card. On the recipe card there’s a big blue “PRINT” button. While I often talk about ingredients and how-to in the post, every recipe always has a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
