Christmas M&M Cookies

December 25, 2014

m&m cookies christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  Stressful and busy, too, but it truly is wonderful.  We reflect on the year (ours was a tad bit crazy, just a tad), spend time with family, and of course, eat lots of sweets.  Particularly, chocolate sweets.  In the cookie form.

Agreed?  Yes.  It was so busy we didn’t have time to make enough cookies (according to my brother).  I guess there’s just something about eating them right out of the oven.

From my family to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas.  xo

family christmas 14 lr


1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cup flour
1 cup M&Ms, plus more for topping
1 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Cream sugar & butter with mixer in a large bowl.  Mix in vanilla & eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, combine salt, baking soda & flour.  Add flour mixture to other bowl and mix until blended.
  • Stir in M&Ms and chocolate chips.
  • Roll dough into small balls.  Add 3 – 5 M&Ms to the top of each cookie.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 – 12 minutes.

Sometimes I’ll make the dough and refrigerate overnight.  I’ll bake the cookies the next day or 2.  Like most cookies, they are best hot out of the oven!
