M&M Cookies Recipe

Soft and Chewy M&M Cookies - always a hit and easy to make! { lilluna.com }

I LOVE me some good cookies!

This week’s M&M Cookies Recipe is so easy and fun! It’s always a FAVORITE with the kiddos {even with the adults!!}

And what’s great about this recipe is that it’s quick and the cookies ALWAYS turn out soft. :)

We’ve always loved M&M Cookies in our home and the kids love that they can help by adding the M&MS on top before they get baked. I liked that it’s a combination of cookie and candy, and what’s not to love about that?!

I will admit that I usually prefer Chocolate Chip Cookies, but there is just something so yummy about adding some candy-coated chocolate to these treats. And I LOVE more than anything that you can color coordinate them for holidays and events depending on the colors of M&Ms you use! And we know that M&Ms now come in every color, which makes it that much better!

You can also modify it to your liking. My hubby loves White chocolate more than regular Chocolate so I also made a White Chocolate Chip M&M Cookie version by adding 1 cup of white chocolate chips, and white Chocolate M&Ms on top – EASY!!!

YUMMY White Chocolate M&M Cookies - these are so good!

    Thank you for the recipe! I REALLY dislike making cookies, mostly because they never turn out for me. I prefer a nice chewy cookie, with a teeny crunch on the outside. And I haven’t found the perfect recipe yet. I think I have! These are DELICIOUS! I used the fall colored M&M’s. They’re perfectly chewy, with great flavor. Thanks!

      Your comment made my day, Erica!! SO glad you like them. My hubby likes the cookies the same way as you… soft but a tid crunch on the outside. :) I’m sure they looked great with the Fall Color M&Ms!! Thanks for stopping by. :)
