Chocolate M&M Cookies

Chocolate M&M Cookies 3

My son had his little heart set on M&M cookies today.  I wanted to try a recipe for knock-off Thin Mints, but of course, he won.  Together we searched Pinterest and discovered these gems, posted originally at Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts (

Being impatient, I did not chill my dough for the recommended 1/2 hour.  I finished stirring them, put them on my baking sheets and threw ’em in the oven to bake.

Here’s the recipe, with my slight adjustments.

Chocolate M&M Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T milk
1 cup M&M’s (I used the regular ones)

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.  In a medium bowl, cream the butter with a mixer for 20 seconds.
3. Add white and brown sugar to the butter.  Mix for approximately 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
4. Add the egg and vanilla.  Next, mix in flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.  (The dough will be thick!)  Using a fork, stir in the milk.  Finally, stir in the M&M’s.
5. Drop dough in small balls onto baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 9-ish minutes, until the cookies look done on the edge.  Allow cookies to cool several minutes before removing from baking sheet.  ENJOY!
