Chocolate M&M Cookies Recipe

These Chocolate M&M Cookies are so yummy and incredibly easy to make. If you have never had these, you need to stop what you are doing and make them. The M&M's are really what make this cookie to die for. You will love them.

The first step to addiction is admitting you have a problem, right?

I can honestly say that I am a chocaholic.  Not a day goes by that I don’t have some sort of chocolaty goodness to eat.  A day without chocolate is a day I don’t want to endure.  Haha.

These cookies are so chewy and chocolaty that I had to give them away to refrain from eating them all myself.

My kids helped get in on the action and we made them together after school. I love creating memories in the kitchen with my little ones and teaching them how to cook.

These were definitely a hit as well. I am surprised there was enough dough left to make actual cookies, because my taste testers were very committed to their job.

if you love cookies, you’ll want to try our very best chewy chocolate chip cookies. they are big, moist, chewy, and absolutely delicious!

Chocolate cookie shortcut:

I am all about homemade and cooking from scratch, but sometimes, I just don’t have the time. When I am craving chocolate and need my fix quick, I don’t want to have to make a cookie from scratch.

So if this is you at times, you don’t need to feel alone, because I am right there with you. If you are looking for a similar recipe, but just shortcut method, let me introduce you to our Brownie Mix Cookies.

Yes, you read that right, cookies made from a brownie mix. I usually always keep one on hand (because of my chocolate addiction) so I can just whip these right up. They are the perfect mix between a brownie and a cookie.

The best part is, you can whip these bad boys up in half the time. I don’t really recommend one chocolate cookie over the other. They are both extremely delicious.

If you don’t have a brownie mix on hand, these are definitely the cookies you will want to make.

Add a little peanut butter flavor:

I love chocolate and peanut butter. I you are looking to switch things up, here is what I recommend:

  • add 1/3 cup creamy (or chunky) peanut butter to the batter.
  • add peanut butter chips.
  • add Reese’s Pieces instead of M & M’s (or do both. I won’t judge).
  • add Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup pieces to the batter.
